Elizabeth Baisley

Politics, PhD candidate

Graduate Associate

I am a PhD candidate in Princeton’s Department of Politics.  Currently my research explores the historical development of social conservative movements in the United States and Canada.  More broadly, I am interested in comparative political development (especially American political development [APD] and Canadian political development [CPD]), historical institutionalism, and qualitative methods.
