Assistant Professor of Politics
American Politics, Political Behavior, Political Socialization, Public Opinion, Women and Politics, and Research Methods
Professor Greenlee's current scholarship investigates the relationships between major life cycle events, such as becoming a parent, and the political attitudes and behaviors of ordinary citizens. More broadly, she is interested in how individuals change politically as they move through the life course. Her forthcoming book, The Political Consequences of Motherhood (University of Michigan Press) investigates the complex relationship between motherhood and female political attitudes. It combines a historical overview of how motherhood has been used in the American political landscape over time with individual-level analysis exploring how and when motherhood shapes the thoughts and preferences of women.
In addition to research on gender, Professor Greenlee has investigated questions related to racial attitudes and generational change. She has published work in journals such as Political Psychology, Politics and Gender, and P.S. Political Science and Politics.
Professor Greenlee teaches courses in American Politics, Women and Politics, Political Behavior, and Research Methods.
