Meet the new editorial team:

Susan Banducci

Susan Banducci

My research focuses on elections as instruments of democracy through examining inequalities in political participation, bringing together individual and institutional explanations using large-scale cross-national and longitudinal surveys. I have 20 years of experience working on international, collaborative projects including the New Zealand Election Study, the European Election Study and two EU funded early career researcher training networks. Most recently, I am PI on an NCRM Methodological Innovation grant and PI on a European Industrial Doctoral Training partnership funded by the European Commission.  I have published articles and book chapters in academic journals such as Public Opinion Quarterly and the British Journal of Political Science.

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh. I previously held positions at the University of Iowa and the University of North Texas and was a visiting researcher at the University of Mannheim.  I received my PhD from the University of Michigan.  My research focuses on comparative electoral behavior primarily in Europe.  I am interested in understanding political party strategies and their outcomes for the party, its elected officials, and voters, and how party type and size, institutions, and context influence parties’ decision‐making at both the domestic and European levels. I have a particular interest in the behavior of new and small political parties. My research has been published by the British Journal of Political Science, European Journal of Political Research, Comparative Political Studies, Party Politics, Electoral Studies, and by the University of Michigan Press.

My research focuses on political communication and political psychology, primarily in the United States and Britain, where I have studied and worked for the last 20 years. This research has mostly drawn on experimental and survey data but I have also used other methods from content analysis to focus groups. Most recently I have worked on funded research on projects including, “Public Perceptions of Threat in Britain: Security in an Age of Austerity” and “Media in Context and the 2015 General Election: How Traditional and Social Media Shape Elections and Governing.” I have published articles in journals such as the American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics and the British Journal of Political Science.
