I am Brian Falb Harrison (Ph.D. Northwestern) and I am a political scientist, teacher, writer, and media consultant. I am currently a lecturer in the political science department at Northwestern University.

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.

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 Political Behavior, Legislative Studies Quarterly, and Social Science Quarterly. I also have a completed book manuscript under review.
