James Lindley Wilson is an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago. He received his PhD in Politics from Princeton University, a JD from Yale Law School, and an AB from Harvard University. James's forthcoming book, Democratic Equality (Princeton University Press, 2019), articulates the moral force of the democratic idea that all citizens are equal political authorities, and explains what the practical implications are if we took this idea (more) seriously. He has also published articles in leading journals like the American Political Science Review, the Review of Politics, and Representation.
