Ethan vanderWilden

Welcome! My name is Ethan vanderWilden and I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I study comparative politics with a focus on Europe and the United States. My main research agenda assesses how historical narratives affect modern political attitudes and behavior. My dissertation explores how authoritarian nostalgia becomes normalized over time, and how this process affects electoral behavior.

I can be contacted via email at and by mail at 110 North Hall, 1050 Bascom Mall, Madison, WI 53706.
