Michael C. Dawson is the John D. MacArthur Professor of Political Science and the College at the University of Chicago and the founding and current Director of the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture at the university.

Professor Dawson’s research interests include the development of quantitative models of African American political behavior, identity, and public opinion, the political effects of urban poverty, and African American political ideology. He also combines more recent quantitative work with work in political theory. Both his research on race and his strong interest in the impact of the information technology revolution on society and politics are fueled in part from his time spent as an activist while studying and working in Silicon Valley for several years.
