John McAdams

Professor of Political Science, Marquette University

Professor John McAdams teaches American Politics, Public Opinion, and Voter Behavior at Marquette University. He has previously taught at Harvard University and also earned his Ph.D. there in 1981. His research has highlighted Congressional elections, social class and politics, the New Class, and the death penalty.

He has written for journals including American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics, Sociological Quarterly, and Law and Contemporary Problems. In 2011, he published his book JFK Assassination Logic: How to Think about Claims of Conspiracy.

In 2014, Marquette University suspended Professor McAdams from teaching and moved to strip him of tenure after 30 years of teaching, due to his remarks about a graduate student shutting down free classroom discussion. He sued the college in 2016 and the case was heard by the Wisconsin Supreme Court this April. He continues to champion free speech on college campuses.
