Anna Hopper

PhD Candidate in Government
AH

I am an 8th year graduate student studying American and comparative politics. I graduated from Harvard in 2011; as an undergraduate, I concentrated in Government and wrote a senior thesis (on party rebellion and rhetoric in the Scottish Parliament). I returned to Harvard for my PhD after completing a master's degree in Social Science of the Internet at Oxford. During the years, I have done primarily done research on parties and legislatures, the internet, gender, and transportation, the last of which is the focus of my dissertation. I have advised multiple senior theses and currently teach Gov 99 (the senior thesis writing seminar). In total, I have worked closely with more than 20 undergraduates on the development of thesis projects on topics ranging from female politicians to health care to minority voting behaviors to war, just to name a few. I have experience advising students on statistical analysis, interviews, case studies, and surveys. I consider helping with the development of senior theses one of the most rewarding parts of teaching, and I would be happy to discuss potential thesis ideas with you.
