Dr. Castater's Vita

Bio

Eric Castater recevied his Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Tennessee in the summer of 2015. His research interests include labor unions, economic inequality, the welfare state, the socio-economic and political consequences of economic globalization, and, more generally, politics in the wealthy democracies.  His dissertation, Labor Unions and Economic Inequality in the Wealthy Democracies, examines how factors internal and external to unions (such as union membership composition, government partisanship, and economic globalization) impact the union effect on economic inequality.
