I’m Brian Falb Harrison (Ph.D., Northwestern), a social scientist, writer, media consultant, and award-winning teacher. My research and teaching focus on the effects of communication and identity on public opinion and political and social behavior in American politics.

My book Listen, We Need To Talk (Oxford University Press, with Melissa Michelson) looks at how identity and communication affect attitudes toward LGBT rights like marriage equality, employment non-discrimination, and transgender rights (www.tinyurl.com/listenweneedtotalk). I have two other book projects on similar topics currently underway.

I have 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, Politics, Groups, and Identities, and Social Science Quarterly.
