Noga Rotem is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Washington. Her research and teaching focus on contemporary democratic and feminist theory, history of political thought and affect theory.
Her first book project, “(Post) Paranoia from Hobbes to Arendt,” draws on the work of Hannah Arendt, Thomas Hobbes and Richard Hofstadter to explore the dangers and the potential promises that paranoia offers to democratic theory and politics.
Rotem earned her PhD in Political Theory (with distinction) from the Department of Political Science at Brown University. She earned her bachelor’s (2009) and Master’s (2012) degrees from Ben-Gurion University in Israel, both summa cum laude.
Her article, “World-Craving: Rahel Varnhagen, Daniel Paul Schreber, and the Strange Promise of Paranoia,” appeared recently in Political Theory.
