Center for the Study of Democratic Politics (CSDP)

CSDP will welcome new faculty and graduate students, and the 2019-2020 CSDP Fellows will introduce themselves and their work:

  • Charlotte Cavaille is an Assistant Professor at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan. In her research, Charlotte seeks to further our understanding of democratic politics' effect on mitigating or enhancing market-driven economic inequality.
  • Chinbo Chong recently completed her PhD, and her research addresses political behavior, public opinion, and political incorporation with an emphasis on race, ethnicity, and immigration, using survey and experimental methods. Her dissertation was a study of the effectiveness of pan-ethnic (e.g. Asian American; Latino/Hispanic) and national origin (e.g. Chinese American; Mexican American) identity appeals on voter turnout, candidate evaluation, and civic participation among Latinos and Asian Americans.
  • Jesse Crosson will join the faculty at Trinity University this year. His research agenda investigates why public policy changes when it does, and why it often fails to do so -- even when many elites and citizens appear unsatisfied with the status quo.
  • Melinda (Molly) Ritchie is an assistant professor of political science at the University of California - Riverside. While at CSDP, Molly will be completing her book project, Back-Channel Policymaking: Congress, the Bureaucracy, and Inter-Branch Representation.
  • Steven White is an assistant professor of political science at Syracuse University. His research interests include race and American political development, particularly how major upheavals like war can reshape racial politics. His first book is World War II and American Racial Politics: Public Opinion, the Presidency, and Civil Rights Advocacy. While at CSDP, Steven will start a second book project, tentatively titled The Police as a Political Institution in American Politics.
