Theresa Schroeder Hageman, Rebecca Best and Jeremy Teigen

Theresa Schroeder Hageman's research focuses on the interconnection of women, gender stereotypes, and security. Previous research looks at how beliefs about women's ability to handle security threats impedes their election. Current projects investigate whether military service can help female candidates overcome gender stereotypes. I teach a variety of courses in International Relations and Comparative Politics including, International Conflict, Latin American Politics, and Gender & Warfare. Dr. Rebecca Best joined the Political Science Department at UMKC in the Fall of 2012. Her current research focuses on the reintegration of female combatants, the effects of women in government on the prospects for peace resolutions of civil wars, the effects of insurgent fractionalization on bargaining between states and rebels, and the effects of terror watch lists. Jeremy Teigen is a Professor of Political Science at Ramapo College within the School of Humanities and Global Studies. I research and teach on American politics, specifically elections, voting behavior, turnout, political geography, and military service. I earned my BA from the University of Wisconsin and my PhD from the University of Texas.
