Tony Gill

Anthony Gill (Ph.D. UCLA; B.A. Marquette) is Professor of Political Science at the University of Washington, a Distinguished Research Scholar at Baylor University’s Institute for the Study of Religion, and former research associate at the Religious Freedom Project (Georgetown’s Berkeley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs). He is the author of Rendering Unto Caesar (Chicago) and The Political Origins of Religious Liberty (Cambridge), which won the American Sociological Association’s Section on Religion’s Distinguished Book Award. While still writing on religious liberty, Gill’s current research agenda is shifting to understanding the role of local norms in coordinating human behavior (as opposed to government regulation). Tony is also collaborating on a book with a former student entitled Greekonomics: How Economics Explains Fraternities and Sororities. He teaches courses in political economy, public choice, and religion and politics, and earned the University of Washington’s Distinguished Teaching Award in 1999.
