Dr. Dooley’s research examines the influence of nationalism on state power and in particular, the way that regional minorities in Western and Eastern Europe have either benefitted or been harmed by their respective governments. Since nationalism is related to political movements, Dooley has also published in a variety of journals on topics related to ethics, terrorism, and foreign policy. In 2011, Professor Dooley was named Dean of the Honors School.
