I am Brian Falb Harrison (Ph.D. Northwestern) and I am a political scientist, teacher, writer, and media consultant.

I have a forthcoming book with Oxford University Press. My work has been cited in the New York Times, the Washington Post, Salon.com, The Guardian (UK), and National Public Radio and published in academic outlets like Political Behavior, PS: Political Science and Politics, Legislative Studies Quarterly, and Social Science Quarterly.

My research focuses on the effects of communication and identity on public opinion and political behavior in American Politics. My most recent work looks at how identity and communication affect attitudes about LGBT policies like marriage equality, employment non-discrimination legislation, and transgender rights.
