The Department of Political Science is pleased to announce the acquisition of Dr. Nadejda Marinova as a new tenure-track Assistant Professor.  Dr. Marinova received her Ph.D. from the School of International Relations and the Department of Political Science at the University of Southern California in 2011 and she was a Dornsife College Postdoctoral Distinguished Teaching Fellow at USC in 2011-2012. She also holds a B.A. from Georgia College and State University and an M.S. in International Affairs from the Sam Nunn School at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  Her dissertation was entitled “House of Lebanon: How Host States Use Diasporas.”  In this work, Dr. Marinova develops a new theoretical model explaining how host states employ diasporas to advance their foreign policy agendas.  The principal focus is on the Lebanese Diaspora in the United States under the administration of George W. Bush.  She has published an article in Foreign Policy Analysis, co-authored with Patrick James, entitled “The Tragedy of Human Trafficking: Competing Theories and European Evidence.”  Dr. Marinova has expertise in the fields of Comparative Politics and International Relations, with an area specialization in Middle East Politics. She speaks Bulgarian, Russian and Spanish, has a reading knowledge of French, and has studied Arabic.  The addition of Nadejda Marinova to the faculty will enhance the Department’s research and teaching capacities in comparative and world politics, and we wish her a warm welcome.
