Samantha Koprowski

I am a second-year PhD student in the department studying Women and Politics and American politics. Currently, my research interests include perceptions of grassroots campaigning and what that might mean in terms of representational claims and candidate authenticity. I also am interested in issues involving women’s representation in U.S. legislatures, women’s interests expressed in public policy, and gender dynamics in social movements.
