Dr. Elizabeth C. Connors


Elizabeth studies how people’s social surroundings influence their political values, opinions, and behaviors. Using a variety of methods—including survey experiments, lab experiments, and various types of observational analyses—she speaks to core and timely questions relating to political behavior, political communication, and political psychology in American politics. Elizabeth’s research has been funded by the Time-Sharing Experiments for the Social Sciences and she has received various awards including the John Sullivan Award from the American Political Science Association section on Elections, Public Opinion, and Voting Behavior (2018), the Milton Lodge Award for outstanding graduate student research (2019), as well as various travel grants. Her research has been published in Public Opinion Quarterly, Political Science Research and Methods, and Political Behavior.
