Awardee | Katherine Levine Einstein (Ph.D. '12)
Alum Katherine Levine Einstein (with co-author David Glick) is the 2015 award recipient for best conference paper from the American Political Science Association's Urban Politics section. The award recognized their paper, "Cities, Inequality, and Redistribution: A Survey of Mayors."
Einstein and Glick, both Assistant Professors of Political Science at Boston University, are co-principal investigators for the Menino Survey of Mayors, a novel data set of survey-interviews with over 70 U.S. mayors exploring a wide variety of political and policy issues.
These data, alongside an array of data on local spending and policy initiatives, comprise the basis of Einstein's second book project, What Mayors Think: National Politics in Local Policy (with David Glick), which explores the increasingly nationalized and partisan politics facing America’s mayors.
Einstein earned her Ph.D. in Government & Social Policy from Harvard University in 2012.
