Melanee Thomas

Assistant Professor

Department of Political Science, University of Calgary

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Calgary. Prior to this, I was the Skelton-Clark Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Political Studies at Queen’s University, and I studied at the Centre for the Study of Democratic Citizenship in the Department of Political Science at McGill University. My research and teaching interests revolve around the causes and consequences of gender-based political inequality in Canada and other post-industrial democracies, with a particular focus on political attitudes and behaviour, and policy feedback. 

I completed my dissertation in 2011, under the guidance of Elisabeth Gidengil. Here, you can read more about my dissertation and other research projects. My complete CV is available here.    

In addition to my interest in research, I am enthusiastic about teaching, and I find it very rewarding. Information on courses I’ve taught and developed can be found here.
