PostDoc, 2020 – 2021



Phillip Ayoub is an associated senior researcher in the Postsecular Conflicts Project. He is Assistant Professor in the Department of Politics at Drexel University. He received his Ph.D. from the Department of Government at Cornell University in 2013, after obtaining a B.A. from the University of Washington and M.A. degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Cornell University. He also spent a year as Max Weber Fellow in the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the European University Institute.  His research bridges insights from international relations and comparative politics, engaging with literature on transnational politics, gender and politics, norm diffusion, and the study of social movements. His book, titled When States Come Out: Europe’s Sexual Minorities and the Politics of Visibility, was published by Cambridge University Press in April 2016.  Using a mixed-method approach that combines large-n quantitative analysis with in-depth qualitative analysis of key cases, it explores the domestic conditions under which international norms governing LGBT rights are most likely to spread. Professor Ayoub’s publications have appeared or are forthcoming in Comparative Political Studies, Critique Internationale, the European Journal of International Relations, Mobilization, the European Political Science Review, and Perspectives on Europe. He has received various grants and fellowships, including a Fulbright Schuman Fellowship for the European Union, an Alexander von Humboldt Chancellor Fellowship, a Cornell Sage Fellowship, a Mellon Writing Fellowship, three FLAS Fellowships, and a Max Weber Postdoctoral Prize Fellowship.
