Farber Public Affairs Lecture Series welcomes Theda Skocpol to USD
As part of the inaugural W.O. Farber Public Affairs Lecture Series, Skocpol will deliver a keynote address, “Voice and Inequality: The Transformation of American Civic Democracy,” as well as meet with faculty and students throughout the day. Skocpol, who was awarded the Johan Skytte Prize in Political Science in 2007, is an extremely distinguished scholar in both political science and sociology. She is the Victor S. Thomas Professor of Government and Sociology at Harvard University where she has served as dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and as director of the Center for American Political Studies. In 1996, Skocpol served as President of the Social Science History Association, an interdisciplinary professional group, and in 2002-03, she served as president of the American Political Science Association during the centennial of this leading professional body.
Named for William O. “Doc” Farber (1910-2007), who led a distinguished career in political science at USD for more than three decades, the W.O. Farber Public Affairs Lecture Series aims to provide students and the public with insight into national and state politics, campaigns and elections, public administration issues and international relations.
The U's Political Science League annually organizes and sponsors trips, brings speakers to campus, hosts an evening film series and sponsors other social and academic activities.
