Assistant Professor of American Politics, Connecticut College
Mara Suttman-Lea is an Assistant Professor of American Politics in the Department of Government and International Relations at Connecticut College. I research and teach about election laws and administration, political parties and campaigns, and political engagement. I am also the host of the podcast What Voting Means to Me, and an avid distance runner.
I am originally from Northern Lower Michigan (Leelanau County!) but lived in Chicago (Go Cubs!) for over 10 years before moving to Connecticut. Prior to earning my PhD from Northwestern University, I studied at DePaul University (BA in Political Science and Islamic World Studies).
