I teach in the Spring Semester, POL 344: Israel in the Middle East
Gregory Mahler received his B.A. from Oberlin College (1972) and his M.A. (1974) and Ph.D. (1976) degrees in Political Science from Duke University. Since receiving his Ph.D., he has taught at Metropolitan State College (Denver), the University of Vermont, the University of Mississippi, and Kalamazoo College (Michigan). He now serves as Vice President for Academic Affairs and Academic Dean at Earlham College, Richmond, Indiana. Mahler has lectured widely on politics, including such areas as federalism, constitutionalism and topics related to constitutional government, and other political topics, as well as on specific political institutions and issues in Canada, Israel, and Palestine. In addition to numerous speaking engagements in the United States, he has lectured in such foreign settings as Albania, China, Israel, Mauritania, Mexico, Moldova, Palestine, the Soviet Union, and Trinidad (as well as many other locations). Mahler has published widely in the fields of his scholarship, including over two dozen books, dozens of scholarly articles, and as many professional papers presented at conferences. His current fields of scholarship include comparative politics and government, and Israeli and Palestinian politics. Many of his papers and presentations have focused on American higher education and topics related to higher education curricula and administrative structures.
Currently working on a study of constitutionalism in the Middle East, and the particular challenges that are posed for constitutionalism by religious orthodoxy there.
