Stephanie Golob teaches courses in both International Relations (The United States in an Age of Globalization) and Comparative Politics (Politics of the Third World, Latin American and Caribbean Political Systems).  Similarly, her major research interest - sovereignty under globalization, with a specialization in the Western Hemisphere - occupies the intersection of these two subfields. 

Professor Golob has two ongoing research projects, the first on regional integration in the NAFTA Triad (Canada-U.S.-Mexico), and the second on the globalization of 'rule of law' ideas and their impact on legal and judicial culture in post-authoritarian Chile and Spain.  Her work on NAFTA has appeared in World Politics and Canadian-American Public Policy, and her work on the Pinochet Case has appeared in Democratization, receiving the journal's Frank Cass Award for 2002. 

The recipient of a Fulbright-Hays fellowship, Professor Golob has lived and worked in Mexico City, as a visiting scholar at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM), and in Ottawa, as a visiting researcher at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University.   At CUNY, Professor Golob has been awarded a Whiting Teaching Award in the Humanities (2002-2003), as well as a Mellon Resident Fellowship at the Center for the Humanities at the CUNY Graduate Center (2006-2007).
