Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hey, my name is Ugonna and I am a senior in Yale College. I've been interested in political philosophy since high school. Here at Yale, I've been involved in quite a few political activities, from co-founding the Yale Journal of Political Thought, to running the Yale Political Union as its Speaker, to running for the Ward 1 Alder seat here in New Haven. I'm very excited to teach a class with Splash! and to hear students' thoughts on what proper political leadership looks like.

H1811: Civil Society and its Critics in Splash Fall 15 (Nov. 14, 2015)
This class will be an investigation into political statesmanship and debates amongst political philosophers on citizenship and its role in political life. Students will be encouraged to think of statesmanship as a craft and investigate the role that laws, custom and education play in ordering a community. Readings will draw from excerpts from Plato, Aristotle, John Locke, Hobbes and others.
