Elizabeth Suhay

Assistant Professor
Department of Government

  • Liz Suhay specializes in the study of public opinion, political psychology, and political communication, all within the American context. She arrived at AU in 2014 after five years at Lafayette College (Easton, PA). Her articles, on topics ranging from political conformity and authoritarianism to Internet incivility, have appeared in The American Journal of Political Science, Public Opinion Quarterly, Political Behavior, and American Politics Research. Her current research focuses on the intersection of the public’s political attitudes and their beliefs about the role genetics play in human behaviors, particularly those linked to inequality. She is the co-editor, with James N. Druckman, of the March 2015 special issue of The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, "The Politics of Science: Political Values and the Production, Communication, and Reception of Scientific Knowledge."
