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

My forthcoming book with Oxford University Press, Listen, We Need To Talk, looks at how identity and communication affect attitudes about LGBT policies like marriage equality, employment non-discrimination legislation, and transgender rights.

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.
