Michael Leo Owens

At Emory University in Atlanta, associate professor Michael Leo Owens tackles urban politics head-on, addressing real issues gripping cities all the way from his home state of New York down south to Georgia. As a versatile urbanist and political scientist, Owens is a solid source to weigh in on the issues facing your metro area. He also serves as director of undergraduate studies at Emory.

Owens, former Chair of the board of the Urban Affairs Association, teaches courses on various topics ranging from “Religion and Social Welfare Policy” to “Urban Politics” to “Politics & Punishment.’” In 2007, he published his first book “God and Government in the Ghetto,” in which he examines the political relationship between African-American churches and public agencies.

For his upcoming book project “Prisoners of Democracy,” Owens is studying the public policies and attitudes “that diminish the citizenship of felons in the United States.”
