Jana Morgan

Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Tennessee

Morgan will study how rising economic inequality has shaped the priorities of policymakers. She will explore the influence of wealthy voters on the congressional agenda and investigate why most politicians have not pursued initiatives designed to reduce inequality. She will also analyze a database of machine-readable congressional speeches and other sources to understand how monied interests have shaped legislators’ stances on pro-poor and pro-rich policies in the post-World War II period.
