Talk by YKY Visiting Professor Rod Kiewiet, Professor of Political Science
Rod Kiewiet's research interests span a variety of topics in politics and public policy. Much of his work uses empirical analyses to better understand questions in formal political theory. His current research focuses on the level and distribution of public-school funding across the United States during the past 30 years and on the fiscal challenges facing state and local governments.
Kiewiet also maintains an interest in the role of quantitative analysis in the world of sports. During the 2013–14 academic year, he co-taught a freshman seminar called The Theory and Practice of Moneyball with Fred Claire, former general manager of the Dodgers. Kiewiet was named a University of Iowa College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Alumni Fellow in 2002. He received the Gladys M. Kammerer Award from the American Political Science Association in 1992 and the Congressional Quarterly Press Award in 1986, which were both shared with Mathew D. McCubbins.
Kiewiet has written four books and dozens of articles, and he has served on several editorial boards and executive councils.
