Elizabeth Coggins

Assistant Professor

Elizabeth Coggins joined the faculty of Colorado College in the fall of 2014. She was a post-doctoral fellow at Washington University in St. Louis for the 2013-2014 academic year, after earning her Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2013 (American Politics & Methodology). Elizabeth studies American politics, public opinion, ideological identification, policy mood, and political psychology. Her current project stems from her dissertation, which confronts an enduring puzzle in American politics: How can liberal policy programs remain widely supported and liberal politicians continue to win elections when the liberal identity itself is out-favored by the conservative identity nearly two-to-one? Presently Elizabeth teaches Introduction to American Politics, Ideology in America, Public Policymaking, Congress, and Methods (with Dana Wittmer, new in the 2015-2016 academic year).
