Alice J. Kang

I am an Associate Professor of Political Science and Ethnic Studies (African and African-American Studies Program) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am also affiliated with UNL's Women's and Gender Studies Program.

My research examines women, gender, and politics with a world regional focus on Africa. In Bargaining for Women's Rights: Activism in an Aspiring Muslim Democracy (University of Minnesota Press), I highlight the role of women's movements and conservative movements in making women's rights policy in Niger.

My second book, Reimagining the Judiciary: Women's Representation on High Courts Worldwide (Oxford University Press), traces the rise of women judges on high courts globally. This project is co-written with Maria Escobar-Lemmon, Valerie Hoekstra, and Miki Kittilson and was funded in part by the National Science Foundation.
