I am Brian Falb Harrison (Ph.D. Northwestern University) a political scientist, writer, media consultant, and award-winning teacher. My work focuses on the effects of communication and identity on public opinion and political behavior in American Politics.

My book Listen, We Need To Talk (Oxford University Press, with co-author 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 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.
