In her research and teaching, Dr. Susan Burgess uses pop culture as a lens to understand changes in legal and political values. In her most recent work, which has received national media attention, Burgess tracks depictions of homosexuality in the James Bond series as a way to understand evolving attitudes toward gays serving in the military.

Burgess also coordinates the newly launched Political Science Film Series, featuring documentaries on political issues around the world and Q&A sessions with their directors and producers.
