Alexander  Kirshner

Associate Professor of Political Science

Director of Undergraduate Studies of the Department of Political Science
  • I took a circuitous route to being a professor: management consulting, a masters in the uk, a year traveling, an internship, working at a think tank in DC, and then finally, graduate school in political science.
  • That experience gives me some insight into the career choices facing Duke students.
  • I teach courses about injustice, the right to resist, free speech, war and the history of political thought.
