Nathan finished his Ph.D. in American politics at the University of Michigan this summer. He is currently a Research Fellow in Political Communication at George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairs for the next academic year. His work has been accepted for publication at Public Opinion Quarterly and Political Behavior.
His dissertation investigates how campaign messages interact with audience personality traits to influence political behavior, focusing on violent metaphors and trait aggression. These two factors combine to shape electoral participation, vote choice, and violent attitudes. This work utilizes two national survey experiments, content analysis of presidential campaigns since 1932, and fifty years of ANES survey analysis.
Other projects include a reappraisal of ideological identification (with Don Kinder), and intergroup aggression in the United States, Israel, and India (with Josh Gubler).
