    COLLEGE Teaching Fellow

    BioNate Grubman is a Teaching Fellow in Civic, Liberal, and Global Education (COLLEGE). He was previously a postdoctoral scholar at the Freeman-Spogli Institute's Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law. Prior to coming to Stanford, he earned a PhD in political science at Yale University, an MS in Applied Economics at Johns Hopkins University, and a BA in International Relations at Tufts University. He has taught courses focusing on democracy, contemporary problems of civic engagement, international development, and macroeconomics.

    Nate is currently working on a book entitled Skipping Class: Tunisia's Party System After the Revolution. The book uses archival material, elite interviews, an original survey, and analysis of campaign materials to understand why the party system formed after Tunisia's 2010--11 uprising failed to offer appealing economic policy choices to voters. More broadly, the book considers the role of political parties and their policy promises during transitions from authoritarian rule. His other research focuses on corruption and political nostalgia. His research has been published by the Journal of Democracy, the Middle East Research and Information Project, the Project on Middle East Democracy, and the Washington Post Monkey Cage.

    Nate first went to North Africa in 2007, when he studied abroad in Cairo and briefly lived on a boat. After graduating from college, he spent two years teaching middle school English and high school history in Cairo. He was surprised and inspired by the popular uprising that took place in Egypt in 2011 and has dedicated the time ever since to studying the many difficulties experienced during political transitions. In addition to his time in Egypt, he has studied in Morocco and conducted extensive research in Tunisia.
