Professor Johnson (PhD, Princeton University) specializes in ethnicity, race, and electoral politics in the Americas.  His current work seeks to explain the conspicuous absence of racial appeals to voters in Latin America, despite the increasing visibility and social salience of black identity in the region. Professor Johnson’s approach to teaching seeks to move course content closer to the interests and perspectives of a diverse student population by incorporating underrepresented voices in the mainstream debates in political science. He has a diverse set of teaching experiences that span from an associate degree program in a youth correctional facility in Trenton, NJ to more traditional university classroom settings. This year (2017-2018), Professor Johnson holds the President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Maryland. He will join the faculty in Political Science at Baruch in the fall of 2018.
