Faculty note: Weinschenk invited to write on American politics

The London School of Economics Public Policy Group, one of the most influential university-based think tanks worldwide, recently invited Political Scientist Aaron Weinschenk, a new assistant professor of Public and Environmental Affairs at UW-Green Bay, to write an article for their newly launched multi-disciplinary American Politics and Policy blog (USApp). The central mission of the blog is to increase public understanding of social science in the context of American politics and policymaking. Weinschenk’s first article addresses the topic of civic engagement and low turnout in local elections. The blog is located here: http://bit.ly/1cYNLJr. Additionally, Weinschenk was recently asked about the problem of low voter turnout in local elections by The Atlantic Cities, an online news website that focuses on issues pressing today’s global cities and neighborhoods. An article featuring Aaron’s research and commentary can be found at http://bit.ly/17W3m7v.
