Tocqueville 21 is very excited to announce that Danielle Charette will be joining us as co-editor of the blog, focusing on books, culture, and the arts. Danielle is a doctoral candidate on the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago, completing a dissertation entitled “Hume, Machiavelli and the Acquisitive Passions,” and she has also contributed to publications including The Point and the Los Angeles Review of Books. Readers of the blog will no doubt already be familiar with Danielle’s work, as she has written some of our most original pieces on democratic culture, including reviews of fiction, film, and television. We are very fortunate to have been able to rely on Danielle’s talent for looking at democracy from an interdisciplinary and international perspective in the past, and even more fortunate to have her on board to help us carry the project of this blog forward into the future.
You can follow Danielle on Twitter @DCharette43.
Danielle is joining us thanks in large part to the support of The College at the University of Chicago. There will be some more changes to the blog coming soon in the new year, so stay tuned!
