Dr. Miguel Centellas
Croft Instructional Assistant Professor of Sociology

Miguel Centellas joined the Croft Institute in the fall of 2015 as Croft Instructional Assistant Professor of Sociology. He received his PhD in political science from Western Michigan University in 2007 and previously taught at Dickinson College in Pennsylvania (2006-2008), Mount St. Mary's University in Maryland (2008-2009), The University of Mississippi, and Jackson State University.

His research on political institutions in new democracies has focused on Bolivia, but includes a broader comparative interest in new democracies in Latin America and post-communist Europe. His research explores the relationship between democratization and political identity at the subnational level, and the role played by institutional and socioeconomic factors in that relationship.

Dr. Centellas has conducted extensive fieldwork in Bolivia (where he was a Fulbright Scholar) and is co-director of the joint University of Mississippi and Universidad Católica de Bolivia social science field school in La Paz.
