Carlisle Rainey

I’m an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Florida State University. My research has appeared in the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science, Political Analysis, and other peer-reviewed journals. I teach courses in American politics, comparative politics, and political methodology.


If want to stay up-to-date on my work, please join my email list. Each semester, I send around a brief summary of things I’m working on, finding useful, and thinking about.

You can also subscribe to blog posts via RSS. I’m on Twitter, Bluesky, and Mastodon. I publicly version-control many of research projects and courses on GitHub. I upload my talks to Speaker Deck. I’m on Google Scholar, ORCID and OSF.
