Democracy - We've Got Issues

Wednesday, January 29, 2020, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Let's talk about voter suppression and Gerrymandering.

We live in interesting times and face increasing divisiveness in our country. The library has created a space to discover where we can agree, where we can compromise, and where we can disagree with civility as we discuss some of the most contentious issues of the day. Join us as we deepen our understanding of issues through the lens of constitutional history and legal rulings. These discussions are guided by constitutional scholar and OSU Professor Emeritus James Foster.

James Foster is a founding faculty member of OSU-Cascades. Mr. Foster has taught courses on constitutional law, administrative law, gender and law, and American political thought. He has published articles on legal education, and written about affirmative action, equality debates and the Oregon Judicial Branch. He is co-editor of the book "Governing Through Courts" and co-author of the two-volume "Constitutional Law: Cases in Context." Foster has taught twice in London and in St. Petersburg, Russia. He was book review editor of Legal Studies Forum for ten years, and has served as president of the Pacific Coast Association of pre-law studies and the Pacific Northwest Political Science Association. Since leaving full-time teaching in December 2016, Foster is OSU Professor Emeritus.
