Jessica L. P. Weeks



I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin—Madison

My research and teaching interests focus on the links between domestic politics and foreign policy, the domestic and international politics of authoritarian regimes, and how public opinion affects foreign policy. 

I received my B.A. in political science from The Ohio State University in 2001, a Master’s degree in international history from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in 2003, and a PhD in political science from Stanford University in 2009.

Please contact me with any questions, and thanks for visiting!
