Dr. Keally McBride joined the Politics department in Fall 2007. She received her graduate degrees at University of California at Berkeley with a focus in political theory, and is happy to be back in the Bay Area after teaching at Cornell University, Tulane, Temple, and the University of Pennsylvania. She has published three books, Collective Dreams: Political Imagination and Community, Punishment and Political Order, and with Margaret Kohn, Political Theories of Decolonization: Postcolonialism and the Problem of Foundations. In summer 2016, Oxford University Press will publish Mr. Mothercountry: Colonialism and the Rule of Law.
