Assistant Professor of Political Science, Florida Atlantic University.



Mirya Holman an Assistant Professor in the Political Science department at Florida Atlantic University. I joined the Political Science Department at Florida Atlantic University in 2010 after receiving my PhD from Claremont Graduate University in American Politics and Public Policy. My research interests focus on women and politics, local politics, and environmental politics. My book, Women in Politics in the American City (forthcoming, Temple University Press) examined the effect of the female mayors and city council members on urban politics. I currently am researching the role of the County Sheriff in American Politics, gender targeting in political advertising (which recently received TESS funding), social capital and intersectionality, women's informal political participation in countries with high levels of natural resources, local political rhetoric, and women in Latin American political development, as well as a variety of other projects.
