New faculty, new offerings for fall 2009

This morning the department was happy to host Professor Robin Jacobson and her family, who were visiting from Bucknell where she is currently a professor of political science. Professor Jacobson will join us in the fall, and bring new courses to the department. Among them will be PG 304, Race and US Politics.

In addition, the department will also be joined by Professor Rachel DeMotts, who will serve as the Mellon Assistant Professor of Global Environmental Politics, part of the university's burgeoning program in Environmental Policy and Decisionmaking. Among her course offerings in fall will be PG 325 African Politics and a course on global environmental politics in spring 2010.

Exciting offerings and additions to the PG fold.
