The Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame has appointed five new faculty members who bring diverse expertise in gender and peace studies, development economics, global education, international political economy, policy and armed conflict.
“Befitting the Keough School’s mission and ambitions, each member of this new cohort of faculty brings expertise that is both international in focus and global in scope,” said Scott Appleby, the Marilyn Keough Dean of the Keough School.
“Whether the topic is U.S.-China relations, resource-driven conflict in Africa, the economics of poverty and poverty reduction, inclusive educational policy in developing countries, or intersectional justice, these scholars’ cutting-edge research carries direct implications for policy as well as practice.”
The new faculty — Ashley Bohrer, Joshua Eisenman, Alejandro Estefan, Patrizio Piraino and Rachel Sweet — bring extensive international teaching and field research experience to the Keough School, which opened its doors in 2017.
Ashley Bohrer, assistant professor of gender and peace studies, is a core faculty member of the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, part of the Keough School. She also is a concurrent faculty member in Notre Dame’s Gender Studies Program.
