Mark Brockway is a Faculty Fellow in Religion and Political Science at Syracuse University. His research centers on political identity and activism as expressed through party politics in the electorate, and in governmental institutions. He investigates the consequences of changing political and social identities for party politics including the role of secular and religious identities in shaping partisan affiliation and participation. Specifically, his primary research agenda focuses on the role of secularism and attitudes about science in shaping individual political identification and motivating partisan activism. In addition to his interest in party politics, his research examines religion and politics, political polarization, comparative politics and development, and public opinion. He completed his PhD at the University of Notre Dame and his BA at the University of Oklahoma. He previously worked as an assistant professor of political science at the University of Southern Mississippi.
