Kathleen Sullivan, Associate Professor of Political Science, has just published an article in the Studies in American Political Development, with her colleagues Patricia Strach and Elizabeth Pérez-Chiqués. The article, titled “The Garbage Problem: Corruption, Innovation, and Capacity in Four American Cities, 1890–1940”, looks at how cities innovated and built municipal capacity to provide services like clean water, paved and lighted streets, and sanitation. Looking at four cities —Pittsburgh, Charleston, New Orleans, St. Louis—the authors consider whether corruption, and what type of corruption, fostered innovation and capacity.

Kathleen Sullivan is the author of Constitutional Contest: Women and Rights Discourse in Nineteenth-Century America (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2007).

In Fall 2019, Dr. Sullivan will teach POLS 3050 Writing on Political Science Topics and POLS 4010/5010 American Constitutional Law. She also teaches POLS 2200 The Politics of Law, POLS 4050 Civil Liberties, and LJC 2000: Core Course in Law, Justice & Culture.
