I am Brian Falb Harrison and I earned my Ph.D. from Northwestern University in 2013. I’m an American political scientist, professor, author, and media consultant, and currently a Visiting Fellow at Yale University (ISPS) and an Affiliated Scholar at NYU. I was Visiting Assistant Professor at Wesleyan University for the 2013-2014 academic year.
My research focuses on the effects of identity on public opinion and political behavior in U.S. Politics, particularly surrounding attitudes and behaviors about LGBT rights and marriage equality.
My work has been cited by the New York Times, Salon.com, and National Public Radio and in academic outlets like Political Behavior and Legislative Studies Quarterly, with several other articles under review. I currently have a book under contract with Yale University Press.
