John H. Barnett, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Political Science
Sinh Chao, John H. Barnett here. I teach Political Science courses in Public Administration, Comparative Politics, American Studies, Qualitative Research Methods, and Asian Governments. I came to Emporia State University in 2006 and I have enjoyed teaching and contacts with students.
My graduate work was done in Public Policy at the University of Arkansas focusing on Vietnamese Agricultural Reforms during the Doi Moi period. Vietnamese agricultural reforms are a fascinating topic because Vietnam in the last twenty years has been in the top five exporters of rice. In the last ten years Vietnam is in the top five for exporting. My dissertation explored the policies and their impact on the Vietnamese economy and its society.
My research focuses on rural economic reforms in Southeast Asia focusing on agriculture, aqua-culture, and forestry. I have four articles in the process of being submitted. Lately I have included domestic security and civil service reform in Southeast Asia. In the past I have lived in Vietnam and conducted research at Hanoi Agricultural University. I am currently working on an article on Women in Agriculture with a focus on Kansas.
I am Vice President of the American Society of Public Administrators Kansas Chapter. I am a board member of the Southwest Conference on Asian Studies. For over a year I have been active in Emporia with Dr. Ellen Hansen promoting healthy sustainable communities.
