Isaac Kamola is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science.

Before coming to Trinity, Isaac spent a year as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for the Humanities at Wesleyan University and two years as an American Council for Learned Societies (ACLS) New Faculty Fellow at Johns Hopkins.
