About Me

My name is Joshua Boston, and I am an assistant professor in the Bowling Green State University political science department. My research and teaching center on American political institutions, with particular focus on the federal judiciary, law and society, and constitutional law. I am motivated to address substantively important topics like elite decision-making, identity and representation in the law, and public support for legal institutions. I have additional interests in questions that study separation of powers, the American presidency, and comparative courts. I earned my Ph.D. in political science at Washington University in St. Louis. Previously, I attended the University at Buffalo (SUNY) where I earned an M.A. in political science and B.A. in legal studies (summa cum laude, ΦΒΚ).
