Stanley Feldman, Stony Brook University: Acquiring Political Information: Effects of Threat and Emotion on Learning
CSDP AMERICAN POLITICS COLLOQUIUM
Stanley Feldman is Professor of Political Science and Associate Director of the Center for Survey Research at Stony Brook University. His research focuses on the origins of political preferences, with particular interests in the structure of political ideology and values, and the psychological bases of attitudes and opinions. Professor Feldman is currently working on projects to better understand the nature and complexity of ideology and the implications of this complexity for explanations of core political attitudes and beliefs, and he is interested in the role of emotions in politics. He is developing a new research project to look at the effects of oxytocin on political orientations. His prior work has examined the impact of personality characteristics on political attitudes, particularly authoritarianism. Professor Feldman received his PhD from the University of Minnesota.
