Student Collaborations

 Recent graduate Paul Beach and I are currently working on a “revise and resubmit” of an article to the journal Congress & the Presidency.  Paul was my STEP student and he did such a good job with the research that we decided to write a paper together.  It demonstrates that Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford were the presidents who popularized the idea that the president is “coequal” to the Congress.  Three students have published work they originally wrote in my class in Oshkosh Scholar.  The first was Scott Karel, who examined what Wisconsin Civil War soldiers thought of Abraham Lincoln during the election of 1864.  Derek Daron and Hope Schuhart wrote papers analyzing presidential performance.  Derek wrote his paper on James Madison and stressed he was underappreciated as president.  Hope judged Truman through the lens of his commitment to human rights and found him wanting.   I have supervised numerous internships, including ones every election years designed to have students to get other students interested in and well informed about current political issues and voting.  I look forward to more such interesting and exciting collaborations!
