Notre Dame Scholar Wins Book Award From the American Political Science Association

Christian Davenport, a professor of peace studies, political science, and sociology at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame, received the award for best book on race, ethnicity, and politics from the American Political Science Association. Professor Christian was honored for his book, Media Bias, Perspective, and State Repression: The Black Panther Party, which was published by Cambridge University Press. Professor Davenport’s first book was State Repression and the Domestic Democratic Peace (Cambridge University Press, 2007).

This fall Professor Davenport is teaching a course entitled “Death by Government.” He is working on three additional book projects. The first, which he has completed but has not yet been published, is entitled, To Kill a Movement. This book chronicles how governments repress social movements. He is also working on a book on political violence in Rwanda and a book on the “Untouchables” in India.

Professor Davenport is a graduate of Clark University. He holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in political science from Binghamton University. Prior to coming to Notre Dame in 2008, he taught at the University of Maryland, the University of Houston, and the University of Colorado.
