"Dr. Kenneth Bryant Jr. is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at The University of Texas at Tyler. He earned his BA in Political Science (with a minor concentration in African-American Studies) in 2008 from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio; his Masters of Arts in political science from the University of Missouri in 2014; and his doctor of philosophy (PhD) degree in political science from the University of Missouri in 2017.
The primary motivation behind Dr. Bryant's research and teaching interests are reexamining well-worn conventional thought about historically marginalized communities, as well as exploring new questions on their behavior, attitudes, and development. He believes political scientists’ orthodoxy must refine its answers (or lack of answers) to questions regarding intersecting identities, and how racial, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic, and ethnic factors do (and will) impact American politics in the coming decades."
