Mona Kleinberg, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Political Science.  Her research interests include political communications, political psychology, race and gender, and survey and experimental research methods. Her dissertation was on transformations in the media affecting citizens’ political knowledge and participation. Her article “A Mom First and A Candidate Second: Gender Differences in Candidates’ Self-Presentation of Family” examined the consequences of parenthood on men and women in politics. Parenthood is assumed to be an asset for men and a liability for women candidate, but elections of recent years have called this into question.
