Jill S. Greenlee

Associate Professor of Politics, Brandeis University



Jill Greenlee is an Associate professor of Politics and Women’s and Gender Studies at Brandeis University. She earned her Ph.D. in political science from the University of California, Berkeley. Greenlee’s current scholarship investigates the relationships between major life cycle events, such as becoming a parent, and the political attitudes and behaviors of ordinary citizens. More broadly, she is interested in how individuals change politically as they move through the life course. Her book, The Political Consequences of Motherhood (University of Michigan Press, 2014) investigates the complex relationship between motherhood and female political attitudes. It combines a historical overview of how motherhood has been used in the American political landscape over time with individual-level analysis exploring how and when motherhood shapes the thoughts and preferences of women.
In addition to research on gender, Professor Greenlee has investigated questions related to racial attitudes and generational change. She is currently working on a co-authored book with Professor Tatishe Nteta of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, that investigates the nature of racial attitudes among white Americans who came of age during the Obama presidency.
Professor Greenlee has published work in journals such as Political Psychology, Politics and Gender, and P.S. Political Science and Politics. She teaches courses in American Politics, Women and Politics, Political Behavior, Research Methods and The American Congress.
