2004 Minnesota Political Science Association

On Saturday, November 6, 2004, I attended the Minnesota Political Science Association's annual meeting at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.  MSU Political Science graduate students Jacob Helton, Mike Miller, Ryan Price and undergraduate student Takehito Kamata came with me.


After the morning panel on the 2004 elections in Minnesota, we were served lunch with cold meat sandwiches, salad and wild rice soup.  On the left side are Takehito Kamata, Jacob Helton and Ryan Price.  On the right side are Mike Miller and Fred Slocum.  Between Mike and Fred (face partially blocked) is Alisa Rosenthal, an assistant professor of political science at Gustavus Adolphus College.


Dr. Suzanne Hoeber Rudolph, professor emerita of political science at the University of Chicago and president of the American Political Science Association, gave the lunchtime address, "The Coffeehouse and the Ashram: Habermas, Gandhi and Cultural Constructions of the Public Sphere."

The conference's afternoon panels included "International Perspectives on the U.S. Elections" and "The Language and Politics of Gender in the 2004 Election."  The conclusion of the latter panel at about 3:45 ended the conference.  Fred, Jacob, Takehito, Mike and Ryan are standing by the grand staircase in the Murray-Herrick Campus Center at the University of St. Thomas.
