Jeff Leedham graduated from the M.A. program here at the University of Memphis in the spring of 2013. His thesis, "Reason and MADness: Or How Hegel Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" looked at the "end of history" and its impact on twentieth-century politics. He joined the department in the fall of that year. His areas of interest include late modern and contemporary political philosophy. Jeff is currently teaching courses in political theory, American government, and methodology.
