Linda M. Trautman




PhD, The Ohio State University




Primary teaching interests in American Politics including state and national legislative politics, mass political behavior, U.S. public policy and urban governance.




General research interests in electoral politics, voting rights and representation.  Primary current research foci include mass political behavior and state legislative representation.


My specific research is an examination of the effects of contemporary electoral disenfranchisement upon state level election turnout.  I am also engaged in research which investigates issues of group identity and bill sponsorship in state legislative politics.
