Please join the Teaching Committee for their Pedagogical Advancement Workshop Series as they host Northwestern political science professors Reuel Rogers, Dani Gilbert, Iza Ding, and Matt Pryor as well as Jennifer Lin, Ph.D. Candidate and Teaching Committee Chair.

Professor Rogers’ main interests are in American Politics. His research and teaching engage with questions about the intersection of race, ethnicity, immigration, place, and political behavior as well as with topics in public opinion and urban politics. His first book Afro-Caribbean Immigrants and the Politics of Incorporation explores how Caribbean-born blacks are changing and complicating black politics in New York City and the United States. The study closely analyzes how racial discrimination, bias, and stereotyping shape the group’s political integration patterns. The book won best book awards from APSA’s race, ethnicity, and politics section and urban politics section in 2007. Rogers has held fellowships with the Social Science Research Council, the Ford Foundation, and the Radcliffe Institute at Harvard University. He is currently at work on a new book on the politics of black suburbanization.

Dani Gilbert is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Northwestern University. Her research explores the causes and consequences of hostage taking, including projects on rebel kidnapping, hostage recovery policy, hostage diplomacy, and ransomware. Broadly, she studies political violence, international security, civil war, terrorism, and negotiations. 

Iza Ding (Ph.D. Harvard, 2016) is Associate Professor of Political Science. Her research explores the paradoxes and pushbacks attending economic, political, and cultural modernization, such as creative resistance against institutional rigidities, lingering moral traditions against legal development, enduring historical memories against rapid socioeconomic transformations, and humans' simultaneous degradation of nature and attachment to nature. Ding is the author of The Performative State: Public Scrutiny and Environmental Governance in China (Cornell University Press, 2022). She is currently working on a monograph on global historical waves of environmentalism.

Matt Pryor has a Political Science. He holds an M.A. in Political Science from the University of Chicago. He also has a B.A. in Secondary Education Social Studies, and a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Arizona State University. His current teaching and research interests include political institutions, political behavior, personality and attitude formation, identity politics and health politics.
