Alison Craig (PhD, 2017) has been awarded the Carl Albert Dissertion Prize by the Legislative Studies Section of the APSA for her dissertation entitled, "Crafting a Broad Appeal: Congressional Audiences and Policy Collaboration in the Modern Legislature." Craig is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government at the University of Texas at Austin in the fields of Public Policy, American Politics, and Political Methodology. Her research examines how members of Congress overcome the constraints of the contemporary legislature by appealing to six key audiences: voters, colleagues, the party, interest groups, contributors, and the media. More information about her research can be found on her website.
She will receive her award at the annual APSA conference in August. Congratulations Alison!
