Welcome!

I’m an assistant professor of political science at Monmouth College. I previously held a postdoc at George Washington University, and I join the faculty at LSU next Fall.

With mixed methods & innovative measures, I integrate political communication, public opinion, psychology, and history, often on partisanship & aggression in the U.S. & abroad. My articles appear in Public Opinion QuarterlyPolitical Communication, Political Psychology, Political Behavior, and others. 

Several of my projects investigate how violent metaphors and the public’s aggressive traits shape political behavior, including partisan polarization & voter turnout. My completed book draft on the scarcity of mass ideology (w/ Don Kinder) now has reviews, and my book on partisanship & violence in the American Civil War will be done in 2017.

My C.V. is here.  Feel free to email me: nkalmoe@monmouthcollege.edu
