Erin Baggott Carter is an Assistant Professor at the School of International Relations at the University of Southern California. She received her PhD in government from Harvard University and was previously a fellow at the Stanford Center for International Security and Cooperation. Dr. Carter’s research focuses on Chinese foreign policy and propaganda. She recently completed a book on autocratic propaganda based on an original dataset of five million articles in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish drawn from state-run newspapers in nearly 70 countries. She is currently working on two other book projects: one on the domestic sources of U.S.-China relations, and one that exploits the Foreign Agents Registration Act to explore the role of autocratic money in American politics.
