We enjoy hearing from our political science alumni. Please let us know what you are doing.
D. Jonathan Roberts '08 was awarded his Master's (with Distinction) in Intelligence and International Security in the Department of War Studies at King's College in London. Congratulations, Jonathan!
Judge John E. Jones III '77 was awarded the Geological Society of America's 2009 President's Medal in October 2009. Judge Jones "made international headlines in 2005 when he ruled that the Dover Area SchoolDistrict (Dover, PA) could not teach intelligent design in science classes as an alternative to Darwin's theory of evolution."
Kathleen Flaherty '07 has been working as a Paralegal in New York at the law firm, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton, LLP., which has afforded her the opportunity to live in New York City and, as she says, "experience new endeavors." One of the new experiences she's had is working for a non-profit, Hope Shines, Inc., which runs camps and mentor programs for disadvantaged children around the world. Kathleen said "the main camp is in Rwanda and I spent time there in August working with children at an orphanage." Her experience working with the children in Rwanda was so positive that she is hoping to return to teach English. Please see the link to the Wall Street Journal article about Kathleen's work.
CONGRATULATIONS to Lindsay Robinson '08 on the publication of her article "Tanzania's Missing Opposition" in the Journal of Democracy, vol. 20, no. 4 (October 2009). Lindsay is a master's student at Georgetown University.
