Current Visiting Scholars
E. Nicole Thornton
Dr. Thornton’s work focuses on the persistence of structural racial inequality in liberal democracies in spite of expanding multicultural policies. Her research explores why and how some non-dominant populations have been left behind, while others have begin to realize the benefits of inclusion. Her current project seeks to answer these questions by comparatively analyzing multicultural policies in Trinidad and Maritius.
Matthew Green’s work at the Centennial Center will focus on a book-length manuscript with three principle objectives: The first is to develop a new theoretical model of congressional leadership that can explain Gingrich’s leadership in both the majority and minority. The second is to measure of the degree of influence Gingrich had on congressional policy and politics. The third is to glean more general observations about leadership and politics in the modern Congress from the example of Gingrich’s career in the House of Representatives.
