Institute for the Study of Culture and Society: Dr. Melissa K. Miller (2018-2019)
Dr. Melissa K. Miller Wednesday, April 24th, 2019 | 12-1:30 p.m. | BTSU 207
Dr. Melissa K. Miller is an associate professor in the school of Political Science at Bowling Green State University. Dr. Miller studies voters' employment of gender stereotypes in elections and how these stereotypes may undermine women candidates at the polls. Miller argues that mothers who choose to run for office are particularly disadvantaged due to culturally-ingrained voter stereotypes surrounding maternity. “Mothers on the Run” addresses both voter perception of mother-candidates and how the mother-candidates present their maternal status in a political campaign. Dr. Miller is a leading expert in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and has been published in numerous academic journals.
