Noah Stengl is a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at UW-Madison. His dissertation research is on “terrapolitics,” the contestation over relationships, logics, and concepts that shape the meaning of land. Tracing terrapolitics across texts like Life of Black Hawk and Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie series, he brings his research to bear on contemporary debates such as land restitution.

Noah is a passionate teacher, the managing editor of The Political Science Reviewer, and a graduate fellow at the Center for the Study of Liberal Democracy.
