Angela D. Ledford received her B.A. and M.A. degrees from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas and is currently completing her doctoral studies in Political Science at the University of South Carolina. She specializes in feminist theory, democratic theory, and American political thought. Professor Ledford has taught courses in modern political thought, interest groups and social movements, political parties and elections, and recently completed a course she developed on the politics of race and representation (both political and cultural). Her research on access to reproductive technologies in the South (particularly Mifepristone/RU-486) was awarded the 2002 Emily Thompson Award for the best paper that furthers our understanding of women's health at the annual Women's Studies Conference at the University of South Carolina. She is the co-author of a recent article on race, citizenship, and the relocation of the South Carolina Confederate flag, as well as a number of book reviews. Her current research, Feminist Theory and Group Representation: The Politics of Jurisprudence, Equality, and Difference, focuses on feminist theory contributions to a more just understanding of political representation. She is a member of the American Political Science Association. In addition to her academic pursuits, Angela is an avid hiker, pool player, and college football fan.
