Jill Frank explores the capacity of ancient Greek texts to defamiliarize contemporary politics in radically democratic directions. At IAS, she is developing the ancient idea of geometric equality to challenge notions of equality as a kind of given sameness that have underwritten US jurisprudence since Plessy v. Ferguson (1896).
