Noam Lupu

I am Associate Professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University and Associate Director of the Latin American Public Opinion Project. My research interests include comparative political behavior, representation, Latin American politics, political parties and partisanship, and class and inequality.

My research examines how contexts condition mass attitudes and behavior, and how these and other factors shape democratic representation. I focus especially on features of politics in developing country contexts that are less prevalent in the advanced democracies on which most behavioral theories are based. My book, Party Brands in Crisis, explores how the dilution of party brands eroded partisan attachments in Latin America and facilitated the collapse of established parties. My current research examine the effects of inequality, violence, and corruption on political attitudes and vote choice, and inequalities in democratic representation around the world.

My research has appeared in American Journal of Political Science, American Political Science Review, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of Politics, and World Politics, among others.
