Steven T. Moore

Steven T. Moore's work focuses on a broad spectrum of attitudes around race and politics in American politics, and particularly how these attitudes shape public opinion, how they are reflected in news media, and how they shape meaningful political behavior. His dissertation explored racialized paternalism, and the degree to which this attitude can predict discriminatory behavior and outcomes, despite being closely associated with positive feelings for a given racial group. 

Steven completed a Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Michigan in 2020. He recieved a BA in Political Science from the University of South Carolina.
