Dr. Fonna Forman-Barzilai is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego. One of Dr. Forman’s main areas of research has concerned the moral psychology of Adam Smith. She is the author of Adam Smith and the Circles of Sympathy: Cosmopolitanism and Moral Theory (Cambridge University Press, 2010), and her work has appeared in Political Theory, History of Political Thought, Critical Review and elsewhere. Recent work includes a paper on Smith and Edmund Burke and a book-project provisionally entitled The Virtue of Exile: Cosmopolitan Freedom in the Eighteenth Century. She is co-convener (with Gerry Mackie) of the research group New Frontiers in Global Justice, prompted by recent work by Amartya Sen. From 1999-2001 she was assistant editor of Political Theory. She is currently editor of the Adam Smith Review.
