University of Arkansas at Little RockI am an associate professor of political science at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. I have many and varied research interests, including US foreign policy, providential religious beliefs, framing, presidential and media rhetoric, and pedagogy. I love teaching and getting students involved in research.
I teach introduction to political science, international relations, and US foreign policy, and I am almost always in the process of creating new seminar courses to challenge and engage my upper division students. From 2012 to 2014, I served as the Coordinator of the Middle Eastern Studies Program at UALR. I currently serve on the Middle Eastern Studies Faculty Committee. I am on Sabbatical for the remainder of 2015, to focus on my research on religion and politics.
