Andrew R. Rehfeld currently serves as President and CEO of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis. He is also Associate Professor of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. Rehfeld’s research focuses on contemporary democratic theory with related interests in the history of political thought and the philosophy of the social sciences. His publications include Offensive Political Theory (Perspectives on Politics, 2010), in which he argues that much of what is done under the name of “political theory” does not belong in the social sciences and would be strengthened by moving into the humanities, law, and public policy, and The Concept of Constituency (Cambridge University Press, 2005), which provides a conceptual, historical, and normative analysis of territorial districting. His current book project is entitled A General Theory of Political Representation and is under contract with Cambridge. Rehfeld’s work has been published in many outlets including the American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, and Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, and has received several awards and fellowships. He earned his Ph. D. from the University of Chicago.
