Following his undergraduate studies, he pursued graduate degrees in political science. Dr. Kellow earned his Master’s in political science, with a specialization in political theory, from McMaster University (1998) and a PhD in Political Science from Carleton University (2003)

His current research focusses on the political and economic thought of the Enlightenment.  Having published recently on Adam Smith and Benjamin Franklin, Professor Kellow is currently engaged in a long project examining the cultural and philosophic substance and significance of Franklin’s Autobiography.  That work, tentatively entitled The Civic Education of the Spirit of Commerce, is the subject of both a manuscript project and a number of upcoming papers and presentations.
