Kevin Pham is Assistant Professor of Political Science at Gettysburg College. He is a political theorist whose research explores theories of colonialism, otherness/identity, freedom, and democracy through cross-cultural analysis that challenges and enhances the way we understand the canon of political theory. His current book project explores how Vietnamese thinkers of the early twentieth century adapted Asian and European political theories for their aims of national dignity and self-determination from French colonial rule. His work appears in journals such as The Review of Politics, Polity, New Political Science, The European Legacy, Montaigne Studies, and Contemporary Political Theory. Three of these articles are the first to introduce Vietnamese political thought to debates in political theory.

 

Originally from California, he received a B.A. in political science from the University of California, Irvine, a master’s degree in conflict analysis from the University of Amsterdam supported by a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship, and a Ph.D. in political science from the University of California, Riverside.
