Emma Planinc


Emma’s dissertation project – Regenerating Political Animals: Science and Politics in Eighteenth Century France – concentrates on the religious and scientific foundations of the assertions of the Rights of Man in the French Revolutionary period. Her work on contemporary theory and the history of political thought has appeared in the Canadian Journal of Political Science and the Review of Politics, and she has current projects exploring the work of Thomas Hobbes, and the science fiction of H.G. Wells.
