Amanda Heideman

American Political Behavior


Broadly, Amanda studies American political behavior, but her research tends to focus on local politics, exploring questions related to local political attitudes, behavior, and representation. In her dissertation project, she applies new methods for the estimation of subnational public opinion in order to analyze the quality and process of representation in local politics. In doing so, her work bridges insights from scholarship in the fields of American political behavior, urban politics, and political methodology. Amanda attended PolMeth last summer and has presented at other regional and national conferences.  Her work has appeared in Justice System Journal.  She has several other pieces under review.
