Fields: Political Theory and Race, Ethnicity and Politics
Carole Pateman was born in Sussex, England. She was an adult student at Ruskin College, an independent college in Oxford, and then received her BA and D.Phil from Oxford University. From 1970-72 she was a Junior Research Fellow at Somerville College, Oxford. She has been a member of the faculty at UCLA since 1990 and is currently Distinguished Professor of Political Science. She also holds a zero appointment in the Women's Studies Department and is a member of the Executive Committee of the Center for Social Theory and Comparative History. Her teaching posts span Europe and Australia as well as Stanford and Princeton Universities. At UCLA she teaches classes for both undergraduates and graduates, and works with students pursuing independentstudy, honors research and doctoral candidates. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Science and was elected as a fellow of the British Academy in 2007. She has been active in the discipline of political science, and was the first woman to be President of the International Political Science Association (1991-94). She is a specialist in political theory -- a field that she interprets very broadly. Among her publications are Participation and Democratic Theory (1970), The Problem of Political Obligation (2nd edition 1985) and The Sexual Contract (1988) which received the Benjamin Lippincott Award from the APSA in 2005. The Award is given for a work of "exceptional quality by a living political theorist that is still considered significant after a time span of at least 15 years since the original publication." Her new book, Contract and Domination (2007) (with Charles Mills) extends her work on theories of original contracts to the racial contract and its intersection with the sexual contract, and includes her reply to her critics of The Sexual Contract. Her current research interests continue her long-standing concern with democratic theory, which includes her recent work on a basic income for all citizens. In 2001 she presented the Faculty Research Lecture at UCLA, "The Equivalent of the Right to Life, Land, and Liberty?: Democracy and the Idea of a Basic Income". In 2004 she received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the UK Political Studies Association. A volume of essays about her work, Illusion of Consent: Engaging with Carole Pateman, (ed. Mary Shanley, Iris Young and Daniel O'Neill, Penn State Press), with an "Afterword" by Carole Pateman, was published in 2008.
