Assistant Professor, Ph.D., Saint Louis University

My research focuses on the intersection of ethics and political theory and how they can be deployed in contemporary approaches to critical theory and democracy. Recent publications include "Practical Rationality in Social Scientific Explanation: The Case of Residential Segregation" (Philosophy of the Social Science: 2004) and "Unlocking the Iron Cage: Public Administration in the Democratic Theory of Jürgen Habermas." (Administrative Theory and Practice: 2004). I am currently working on "Putting the Public Back into Public Administration," a book on the application of deliberative democratic theory in the administrative state. I am also a member of the Anchorage Municipal Board of Ethics.
In my spare time, I am a singer/songwriter and a sea kayak instructor. More at www.terrykelly.org.
