Mason Moseley received his Ph.D. in Political Science from Vanderbilt University in 2014, and his undergraduate degree from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2008. Previously, he was the 2014-2015 Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania’s Program on Democracy, Citizenship and Constitutionalism. His research examines comparative political behavior, and particularly how institutional characteristics and processes shape individual level political attitudes and participation in the Latin American context. His work has been published in Electoral Studies, The Journal of Politics, and Comparative Political Studies, and has been funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation. He recently published his first book, Protest State: The Rise of Everyday Contention in Latin America, with Oxford University Press, in which he explores the institutional and socioeconomic roots of swelling rates of protest throughout the region. At WVU, Professor Moseley teaches undergraduate courses on comparative politics, Latin American politics, and contentious politics, and graduate courses on comparative politics and political behavior.
