Welcome! My name is Jérémie Langlois, and I am a PhD Student in the Department of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I study comparative politics with a focus on revolutions, civil-military relations, and authoritarian institutions.
My research is guided by a curiosity about the dynamics of the Second Wave of the Arab Uprisings' (2018-Present) and what they can tell us about regimes and resistance in the 21st century. My methods are informed by the conviction that critical approaches, context-informed theory, and the internationalization of social science produce the best work on politics.
I received my M.A. in Arab Studies from Georgetown University's Center for Contemporary Arab Studies & School of Foreign Service, and my B.A. in Political Science and Middle East Studies from Fordham University in 2016. I have spent over four years in Egypt, Jordan, and Morocco.
You can read my most recent work, "When Reorganizing Coercion Backfires: Explaining the Mechanisms of Revolt in Sudan and Algeria" in Democratization. It received the the 2023 Frank Cass Award for the journal's best article published by a young scholar in 2022.
My writing has also appeared in other outlets, such as the Project on Middle East Political Science (POMEPS), Geopolitical Monitor, the Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA), and the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA). My research and training has been supported by the Rapoport Family Foundation, the Institute for Humane Studies, and the Foreign Language Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship.
Starting in January 2024, I will be a CASA II Fellow at the Center for Arabic Study Abroad (CASA) in Amman, Jordan.
