Political science professor Howard Gillman, of the University of Southern California, will discuss “Bush v. Gore: Two Years Later” at the annual Lectureship in Politics and Law, at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, in the Faculty Study of McFarlin Library on The University of Tulsa campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

“At the time, the Court’s decision to intervene in a presidential election dispute felt like a watershed event in American history,” Gillman said. Today – one recession, one terrorist attack, one anticipated war and one midterm election later – he examines the impact of that decision on American politics and on what we know about the Supreme Court.

““Professor Gillman is of a rare breed of academics whose presentation of his research underscores rather than detracts from the significance of his ideas,” said Jeffrey D. Hockett, associate professor of political science at TU.

“The inspiration for this lecture series, according to Hockett, “was a belief (shared by Dean Martin H. Belsky of the TU College of Law) that students of politics and students of law have much to learn from each other.” For information, contact Jeffrey Hockett at (918) 631-2796 or jeffrey-hockett@utulsa.edu.
