VILLA LE BALZE: I am currently the main campus Faculty-in-Residence at Georgetown University’s Villa Le Balze in Florence, Italy, where I am teaching GOVT 244: Italian Democracy in Comparative Perspective. I will return to the Hilltop in Fall 2018.
RESEARCH: My research interests are in political parties and ideology, principally but not limited to the United States. This includes work on measuring and assessing the role of ideology in coalition building and partisan conflict, on the role of parties in especially presidential nomination politics, and on understanding parties as networks of policy demanders.
LECTURES: Slides and lecture notes for public lectures on presidential nominations, partisan politics and other subjects.
