Anna Stilz is Associate Professor of Politics at Princeton University.  Her research focuses on questions of political membership, authority and political obligation, nationalism and self-determination, rights to land and territory, and collective agency.  She also has a strong interest in early modern political thought (particularly 17th and 18th centuries).  Her first book, Liberal Loyalty: Freedom, Obligation, and the State, (Princeton University Press, 2009), focused on questions of state authority and citizenship, examining the question of whether we have different, and perhaps more stringent, moral duties to our fellow-citizens than we do to people in foreign countries. She has also published articles in Ethics, History of European Ideas, International Theory, Journal of Political Philosophy, Law and Philosophy, Policy and Society, and Philosophy & Public Affairs.  She is currently working on a new book on self-determination and states' rights to control land and territory.  She is interested in related questions concerning the status of indigenous peoples, historic injustice, colonialism, and theories of property.  She has a Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University (2005) and a B.A. from the University of Virginia (1999).

If you are looking for a reviewer for a journal submission, please note that I have recently accepted a position as an Associate Editor for Philosophy and Public Affairs, for which I am required to review 1-2 papers a month.  My policy is to decline most other referee assignments, unless I have submitted to your journal more frequently than I have reviewed for it.  Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
