Dr. Rob Goodman is Assistant Professor in the Department of Politics and Public Administration. He holds a PhD in Political Science from Columbia University, as well as an MA in Public Policy from George Washington University and a BA in English from Duke University. He was previously an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Researcher at McGill University, a Core Curriculum instructor and Heyman Center for the Humanities Fellow at Columbia University, and a visiting predoctoral researcher at the University of Glasgow.
Before beginning his doctoral studies, Dr. Goodman worked as speechwriter for US House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Senator Chris Dodd.
Dr. Goodman’s research interests include rhetoric, classics, and the history of political thought. His book manuscript, Eloquence and Its Conditions, investigates the development of models of skilled speech in classical antiquity, as well as their translation into modern institutional settings. It proposes that these models remain a valuable resource for critiquing the current state of political speech.
