Laura Stoker is Associate Professor of Political Science at Berkeley. Professor Stoker received her Ph.D. in 1990 from the University of Michigan. Her research focuses on the development and change of political beliefs, attitudes, and behavior, and employs data drawn from surveys and experiments. Specific topics include the moral, group, and self-interested basis of citizens' opinions on public policies; sources of short- and long-run change in citizens' evaluations of political candidates and public policies; and political influence within families. Recent publications include "Caught in the Draft: Effects of the Vietnam Draft Lottery on Political Attitudes" (APSR), "Of Time and the Development of Partisan Polarization" (AJPS), and "Politics across Generations: Family Transmission Reexamined" (JOP). She is currently co-directing a project on the persistence of political beliefs and attitudes over the life-cycle and their transmission across generations.
