Jason Enia is chair and associate professor in the Department of Political Science at Sam Houston State University. He is the founding and current director of SHSU’s Center for the Study of Disasters & Emergency Management (CDEM).
Enia’s research utilizes theories and tools of political economy to analyze the politics of low probability, high impact events, specifically nuclear weapons proliferation and large natural disasters. Contrary to what many assume, the politics that underpin these extraordinary issues are often very ordinary.
Enia teaches courses on international relations, international political economy, conflict & violence, comparative disaster politics, weapons proliferation, and research methods.
