Pinheiro will join the faculty of the Political Studies Program as assistant professor of political studies, effective fall 2022.

About Lucas G. Pinheiro
Lucas G. Pinheiro is a postdoctoral teaching fellow in the Department of Political Science and the College at the University of Chicago. His book manuscript, titled Factories of Modernity: Political Thought in the Capitalist Epoch, recasts the early modern factory system as a decisive stage for political thought and practice in Britain and its Atlantic colonies between 1688 and 1807. From this historical study, the book develops a long-range conceptual framework for understanding modern capitalism and confronting its enduring patterns of racialization, labor discipline, and inequality. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in Modern Intellectual History, Contemporary Political Theory, and Disability and Political Theory (Cambridge University Press, 2016), among others.
Pinheiro is the recipient of the 2020 Stephen E. Bronner Dissertation Award in New Political Science from the American Political Science Association and the 2021 Glenn and Claire Swogger Award for Exemplary Classroom Teaching from the University of Chicago. Pinheiro will spend the 2021-2022 academic year at Dartmouth College as postdoctoral fellow in the Political Economy Project and Department of Government. He will join Bard in August 2022 as assistant professor of political studies.
