About Christine Barbour

Christine Barbour teaches in the political science department and the Hutton Honors College at Indiana University, where she has become increasingly interested in how teachers of large classes can maximize what their students learn. At Indiana, Professor Barbour has been a Lilly Fellow, working on a project to increase student retention in large introductory courses, and a member of the Freshman Learning Project, a university-wide effort to improve the first-year undergraduate experience. She has served on the New York Times College Advisory Board, working with other educators to develop ways to integrate newspaper reading into the undergraduate curriculum. She has won several teaching honors, but the two awarded by her students mean the most to her: the Indiana University Student Alumni Association Award for Outstanding Faculty and the Indiana University Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists Brown Derby Award. When not teaching or writing textbooks, Professor Barbour enjoys playing with her dogs, traveling with her coauthor, and writing about food. She is the food editor for Bloom Magazine of Bloomington and is a coauthor of Indiana Cooks! (2005) and Home Grown Indiana (2008). She is currently working on another cookbook and a book about local politics, development, and the fishing industry in Apalachicola, Florida. Matthew J. Streb is professor and chair in the Department of Political Science at Northern Illinois University. He specializes and teaches in areas of political parties, elections, polling and public opinion, and Congress. Streb is the author, editor, or co-editor of several books, including Law and Election Politics (2013), Rethinking American Electoral Democracy (2011), and Running for Judge (2007), and has published articles in journals, including Political Research Quarterly, Public Opinion Quarterly, Political Behavior, Social Science Quarterly, and American Politics Research. Streb has been recognized by the NIU Foundation for "Faculty Excellence".
