David Forrest, assistant professor of politics, received his PhD in political science from the University of Minnesota and his BS in political science from Arizona State University. His research examines, most generally, the interplay between political organization and social, economic, and political inequalities. He is particularly interested in how organized efforts to produce social change challenge and/or reinforce the patterns of marginalization and privilege that underlie inequalities in the United States. He teaches courses on US politics, interest groups and social movements, the politics of inequality, and political power.
