Samara Klar

Assistant Professor of Political Science, University of Arizone



Samara Klar is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Arizona.  She studies how individuals' identities -- the groups, roles, and associations with which they identify -- influence their political attitudes and behavior. She uses experimental methods (in and outside the lab), survey analyses, and other statistical tools to learn about the political consequences of our multiple and, at times, conflicting identities. Her ongoing work pays particularly close attention to the significance of political identity and partisanship, the consequences of diverse deliberation, and the processes by which voters with competing identities reconcile their conflicting interests in order to make a political choice.

Her research is supported by numerous grants, including funding from the National Science Foundation, and her recent work appears in journals including the American Journal of Political Science, The Journal of Politics, Political Psychology, Politics, Groups & Identities, Public Opinion Quarterly, and Social Science Quarterly. She earned her Ph.D. in Political Science from Northwestern University, an M.A. in Political Science from Columbia University, and a B.A. in Political Science and Sociology from McGill University.
