About me

Introduction Professor, Political Science Department, Northwestern University. I teach political theory and write about law-breaking by ICE and the immigration courts for The Nation magazine. My book States without Nations: Citizenship for Mortals was published by Columbia University Press in 2009. It explores alternatives to our current laws that base citizenship on parochial, unjust ideas about birth, and shows how these laws are connected to other archaic practices inconsistent with liberalism, including inheritance and marriage. My first book was Reproducing the State (Princeton, 1999). For contact and other information, please go to jacquelinestevens.org.
