Todd Shaw
Associate Professor
Political Science
College of Arts and Sciences

 

Todd Shaw has been on faculty since 2003 and has appointments both in UofSC's Department of Political Science and the African American Studies Program. He was appointed the College of Arts & Science Distinguished Associate Professor of Political Science and African American Studies by Dean Mary Ann Fitzpatrick in August of 2012. He served as the Interim Chair and then Chair of the Department of Political Science from 2017 to 2020. He researches and teaches broadly in the areas of African American politics, urban politics and public policy, as well as citizen activism and social movements. 


Shaw's current research agenda is to explore the political, sociological, and ideological ramifications of changes in the late 20th century and early 21st century African American community. Specifically, he is very interested in how class, gender, age, and other social factors create differing definitions of what constitutes African American group interests and how groups of African Americans and their allies have acted upon these perceived interests.
