FACULTY AND GRADUATE STUDENTS PAPERS, PUBLICATIONS AND ACTIVITIES:

 

The UW Board of Regents has accepted the appointment of Karam Dana, associate professor in the UW Bothell School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences and adjunct professor to UW Seattle’s Department of Political Science, to hold the newly created Alyson McGregor Distinguished Professorship of Transformative Research

 

Afearing that the UW Pol Sci Dept would not be represented at the annual MPSA meetings, Tony Gill presented "The Comparative Endurance and Efficiency of Religion" at that Zoom conference on Sunday, April 18.  Other than the other presenters and discussants, there was not a single person in the audience, reminding Tony of why he avoids the large, general professional conferences.  Tony also volunteered as a chair and discussant on several other panels to earn a discounted conference registration fee.

 

Tony Gill sponsored a weekend colloquium for some of his undergraduate students who had taken several courses from him in the past few years.  Sponsored by the Institute for Humane Studies, and moderated by Prof. Victor Claar (of Florida Gulf Coast University), the topic of the Saturday seminar was "Markets and Morality."  Attendance and discussion was brisk despite it being in the high 70s outside.
