Sophia Mihic is a graduate of the University of Florida and received her M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the Johns Hopkins University. She studied political theory and public law in the political science department there. She has been a post-doctoral fellow at the Whitman Center for the Culture and Politics of Democracy at Rutgers, and at the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities in Urbana. Her work focuses on the philosophy of interpretive inquiry and on the structural grounds of identity politics. Her dissertation was titled Flirtations with Wissenschaft: Thinking Thinking and Thinking Politics in the Work of Hannah Arendt. She has published on the philosophy of inquiry in the social sciences and on the canon of political thought: "Facts, Values and 'Real' Numbers" with Wingrove and Engelmann in "The Politics of Method in the Human Sciences" and "Mrs. Parker and the History of Political Thought" in a collection on the work of Dorothy Parker both appeared this summer. She is currently working on a book that uses the debate over physician-assisted suicide to explore the assumptions of neo-liberalism in political and moral thinking. She teaches the canon of political thought and a variety of courses on themes in modern and late modern political theory.
