Amy Erica Smith, Associate Professor of Political Science, Iowa State University
Co-sponsored by the Erasmus + Jean Monnet Projects and the Comparative Politics Colloquium of the Department of Political Science
As an Associate Professor of Political Science and Liberal Arts and Sciences Dean’s Professor at Iowa State University, Amy Erica Smith’s research examines politics at the citizen level. She investigates how people around the world understand, interact with, and shape their democratic and authoritarian regimes — and how civic and religious groups and ideas mobilize them. Regionally, her primary expertise is in Latin America, and particularly Brazil.
She has written Religion and Brazilian Democracy: Mobilizing the People of God (2019, Cambridge University Press), and her articles have appeared in a number of peer-reviewed outlets, including the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics, the British Journal of Political Science, and Comparative Political Studies. She is on the editorial board of Politics & Religion and an Associate Editor of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Religion and Politics.
