Alice J. Kang

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

My research focuses on women, gender, and politics with a regional focus on Africa. In my first book, 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 will be on women 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.
