POSC Welcomes Morris Levy and Robert Shrum
August 2014 — POSC is pleased to welcome two new members to our distinguished faculty:
Morris Levy (UC Berkely) is our newest Associate Professor of Political Science, with expertise in American politics and voting. Prof. Levy's current research on the effects of immigration in the U.S. on local support for spending on public goods addresses one of the most important issues in contemporary American politics. Look for his Fall semester class on Political Participation and American Diversity.
Robert Shrum is the inaugural holder of the Carmen H. and Louis Warschaw Chair in Practical Politics. For the past four decades, Professor Shrum has been on the front lines of the democratic process in the United States as an advisor to candidates for the presidency, Congress, and state and local political offices. He is perhaps best known for serving as a consultant on the campaigns of Democratic presidential candidates, including George McGovern, Al Gore, and John Kerry. This Fall Prof. Shrum is teaching "Great Races: From City Hall to the White House" as well as hosting our newest speaker series, Political Conversations.
