Research Scholar Award goes to Aaron Weinschenk
The Research Council, chaired by Amy Wolf, is pleased to announce Aaron Weinschenk, assistant professor of Public and Environmental Affairs, as the recipient of a 2015-2016 Research Scholar Award. The selection was based on his proposal “A Citizen’s Guide to American Elections: The Success and Failure of Representation.” The project is a component of a book to be published in 2015 designed to provide a general overview of key elements of U.S. elections. It will be targeted for use in undergraduate political science courses as well as readership by a general audience. The Research Scholar Award, with funding by the Provost’s Office, provides for a 3-credit reassignment that will allow Prof. Weinschenk to complete the book manuscript as well as work on a journal article focused on public attitudes about income inequality in the United States.
