Amanda Rosen, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Politics and International Relations at Webster University, a Fellow in the Institute for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies, and the Head of International Programs in International Relations. Her research interests focus on the international organization of climate change and its security and human rights implications. This emphasis stems from her doctoral dissertation, “Emission Impossible? The Impact of the International Climate Regime on Sub-National Climate Change Policymaking,” which centered on climate change and foreign policy. She also conducts extensive research into the design and execution of simulations and games in the political science classroom. Dr. Rosen has presented her work at a variety of conferences, including the Annual Meetings of the American Political Science Association, the European Consortium for Political Research, the Midwest Political Science Association, the Southern Political Science Association, and the APSA Teaching and Learning Conference. She is a founder and contributing editor of the Active Learning in Political Science blog. Dr. Rosen also teaches a variety of courses at Webster, including introductory courses in American Politics, International Relations, and research methods; interdisciplinary courses on international poverty and hunger and the use of films, fiction, and games to teach social sciences; and upper-level and graduate courses in environmental and energy security issues and American political behavior.
