College of Arts and Sciences
Stephanie R. Davis joined the department in Fall 2021 as a Post-Doctoral Fellow of the U.S. Founding Documents Initiative shortly after receiving her Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina. Her teaching primarily focuses on American government institutions: the judiciary, the presidency, and congress. In addition, she teaches courses in political theory, constitutional law, and state and local government. In all of courses, she incorporates the U.S. Founding documents in the curriculum.
Dr Davis' research broadly examines how institutional processes affect representation as measured by policy output. She seeks to identify how institutional processes in the U.S. Senate affect policy output with a special emphasis on how Senate apportionment affects policy output. Her other research interests includes how the branches of the federal government relate to each other, specifically how congressional intent influences the federal judiciary.
