  • Faculty Spotlight: Jeffrey Arnold and Megan Francis | Department of Political Science | University of Washington
    to help understand the onset and termination of war The statistical techniques he developed allow him to make estimates despite the fact that there are many different definitions of what exactly constitutes a civil war Arnold is also particularly innovative when it comes to developing novel data sources to gain fresh insights into longstanding political science problems For example in order to understand how leaders develop reputations he created a measure of the fame of international leaders from the size and popularity of their Wikipedia pages In future research he will focus on using machine learning and natural language processing to develop large new datasets in international relations Arnold is excited to be joining the University of Washington community because of its reputation for interdisciplinary research and innovation in the areas of big data and data science This Winter he will be teaching an introductory interdisciplinary course on Statistical Methods for the Social Sciences Our second new faculty member is Assistant Professor Megan Francis Professor Francis completed her Ph D at Princeton University in 2008 and joins the UW faculty from Pepperdine University where she taught for four years Francis s research sits at the intersection of American politics race constitutional law and history Francis just published her first book Civil Rights and the Making of the Modern American State Cambridge University Press 2014 The book explores the NAACP s campaign against racial violence in the first decades of the 20th century Francis s research brings the political work and the voices of African Americans out of the shadows and into the forefront of how to think about political and constitutional development The NAACP s campaign to end racial violence provides compelling evidence that political institutions can sometimes respond to popular demands Put simply Institutional development derives from the tension between powerful actors and those with less power who are able to organize effectively to challenge existing conditions When asked why she decided to focus on the NAACP s early campaign against racial violence she answers By mistake I never imagined I would write this book but as I spent more and more time in the NAACP archives at the Library of Congress I found myself piecing together an exciting story that I had never heard about in all of my studies The NAACP fought for the right to live without threat of racial violence before the organization fought to end segregated education I was blown away and came to realize that the expertise of the NAACP which allowed it to play the role it did during the Brown era of civil rights was developed by a series of earlier events Francis is now working on a second book that examines the role of the criminal justice system in rebuilding southern political and economic power after the Civil War In particular Francis examines the use of chain gangs and leased prisoners as workers and explores how the demand to replace slave labor drove southern criminal justice practices after Reconstruction Francis
