Jessica Blatt joined Marymount Manhattan College in Spring 2010. Before coming to the College, she taught American politics at Sarah Lawrence College.

Professor Blatt’s research focuses on American political thought and particularly how ideas about difference—race, gender, class, and other categories—interact with political discourse and public policy. She is working on a book on racial thought and the origins of the discipline of political science in America. She teaches courses on media and politics, public policy, American electoral politics, and race, among other topics.
