Christine Slaughter is a joint fellow of the Department of Politics and the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics (2021-2022). She received her PhD at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2021. Her primary research interests include political behavior and political psychology, race and ethnicity politics, and poverty. Her second stream of research specifically focuses on Black women voters and intersectionality. Her current work uses sixty-five years of longitudinal data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics to explore one form of adversity – intergenerational poverty – that she argues is foundational to the development of racial resilience. Christine will join Boston University’s Department of Political Science as an assistant professor in 2022.
