Research Summary

Dr. Scudder specializes in democratic theory, specifically deliberative democracy. The question that drives her research is how citizens who have diverse and conflicting political and moral commitments can come together to order public life in a democratic way. To answer this question, she studies political talk among citizens, investigating how practices of political talk either help overcome or actually contribute to persistent problems of political inequality and exclusion.
