Elizabeth Nugent is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Politics at Princeton University. Her dissertation will focus on the effect of inherited attitudinal and institutional legacies on electoral mobilization and party formation in post-authoritarian countries in the Middle East. Her other research focuses more broadly on religion and politics, including current projects on religious appeals and support for Islamist parties in various Arab countries, conceptions of shari`a and support for militancy and democracy in Pakistan, and the effect of variation in worship contexts on political behavior in the United States. She employs survey, ethnographic, and experimental methods in her work.
Elizabeth served as an AY2007-2008 Fulbright Fellow in Cairo, Egypt and holds a B.A. in Arabic and an M.A. in Arab Studies, both from Georgetown University.
