Teaching Assistant Professor, Political Science
215A Hamilton Hall

Nora Hanagan is a teaching assistant professor of political science and a core faculty member in the PPE Program. She teaches courses on American political thought, contemporary democratic theory, and environmental political thought. She is the events coordinator for the Program in Public Discourse. Prior to joining UNC, she served as Managing Director of the Duke Program in American Values and Institutions and taught at both Duke and the University of Wisconsin.

In her research, Professor Hanagan investigates the ethical obligations that accompany democratic citizenship while considering how citizens might fulfill these obligations in societies that are imperfectly democratic. Much of her work puts historical American thinkers—such as Jane Addams and Martin Luther King Jr.—in dialogue with contemporary democratic theorists.
