Kevin R Anderson
Office: 2335 - Coleman Hall
Dr. Anderson (Ph.D. Missouri) teaches courses in American government, political theory and African American politics. Professor Anderson focuses his research on American and African American Political Thought, seeking to understand the tensions between individual liberty, collective good and American political values. His first book Agitations: Ideologies and Strategies in African American Politics (University of Arkansas Press 2010), explores this theme within African American politics. Dr. Anderson has also co-authored a book chapter on media and politics and written a book chapter on working in the 1992 Presidential campaign. His current long-term research project explores the consequences of integration and incorporation in African American politics and he is working with two colleagues from other universities on a project involving the consequences of Voter Identification laws in swing states in the 2012 elections.
