Welcome! My name is Jérémie Langlois*. 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 what the dynamics of the Arab Uprisings' "second wave" (2018-Present) can tell us about regimes and resistance in the 21st century.
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 around four years total living in Egypt, Jordan, and Morocco, where I pursued various opportunities working, conducting research, and studying Arabic.
My most recent work, "When Reorganizing Coercion Backfires: Explaining the Mechanisms of Revolt in Sudan and Algeria," was published in Democratization.
