Blair Center – Todd Shields

Todd Shields, professor of political science, director of the Diane D. Blair Center of Southern Politics and Society, and dean of the Graduate School and International Education

Shields’ research interests lie broadly in applied statistics and American elections.  He and Angie Maxwell co-edited Unlocking V.O. Key Jr.: “Southern Politics” for the Twenty-first Century, which was released by the University of Arkansas Press in spring 2011. He wroteThe Persuadable Voter: Wedge Issues in Presidential Campaigns with Sunshine Hillygus. The book won the Robert E. Lane award for the best book in Political Psychology, awarded by the American Political Science Association in 2009.

“The significance of this survey is difficult to overstate. Given the general absence of accurate data on Southern politics and the attitudes and trends among minority groups, the Blair-Rockefeller Poll is a source of accurate information about Southern politics and policy, as well as the political and social attitudes of African Americans and Latinos.”
