Charles Crabtree’s research focuses on the politics, sociology, and economics of discrimination. In the past, he has studied this normatively important topic primarily in American politics. He increasingly examines it in Japanese politics, an important but insufficiently examined context. Methodologically, he use experiments and automatic text analysis to better understand why people treat others differently because of their ethnicity, gender, national origin, race, or religion. For the 2021-2022 academic year, he'll be on leave from Dartmouth as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Stanford's Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center. His work has been published or is forthcoming at over 25 journals, including the American Journal of Political Science, the British Journal of Political Science [2x], the Journal of Politics [2x], Nature Human Behavior, and Political Analysis. He also regularly write on issues related to Japan for The Hill.
