The principal investigators for this project are Dean Heather Moore Roberson, and Tarah Williams.

Posted on November 27, 2023 | Filed under Archive

Do you ever worry what people would think if they actually knew what was going on inside your head or inside your heart? (Yep. Me too.) The Bible actually says that the situation is far worse than we think. But also – that God loves us far more than we can imagine.

Tonight at ACO, we dig into Mark 7 to listen as Jesus critiques the rule-keeping religious people of His day, and shines a light on the state of our hearts. Come and see how “the good news” relates to that.

All are welcome! ACO is a place for students to explore the Bible and pursue faith in Jesus – together. No past experience or belief are necessary! We meet Tuesdays at 8:30 pm in Ford Chapel. Contact aco@allegheny.edu with questions.

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is conducting a research study on diversity, equity, and inclusion at Allegheny College and is inviting the community to participate.

Law & Policy Speaker Series: Political Action Committees, Local Elections, and Racial Representation 11/2

Posted on November 1, 2023 | Filed under Archive

The Center for Political Participation will host Professor Andrea Benjamin (University of Oklahoma) for a public lecture about how interest groups can influence local elections and the consequences of racial representation. This event is happening tonight (Nov 2) at 7 pm in the Quigley Hall Auditorium.

It is the fourth and final installment of the Law & Policy Speaker Series on the challenges and consequences of political campaigns. Here’s a description of the talk:

“PACs Rule Everything Around Me: Political Action Committees in the Local Context and What this Means for Black Voters.”

The vast majority of research on interest groups tends to focus on the state and national levels. Recent scholarship has shifted to the local level, for good reason: there are a large number of cities that have organized interests and Political Action Committees. Additionally, the local political context varies from state and national contexts in two key ways: many of these elections take place off-cycle, and many are nonpartisan. Using data from an exit poll conducted during the 2017 municipal election in Durham, NC, Benjamin considers whether voters in Durham knew which Political Action Committees (PACs) endorsed which candidates and whether knowing the endorsements of candidates is associated with their support for those candidates. Benjamin then considers questions of representation and what that means for Black voters in the city.

Karl W. Weiss ’87 Faculty Lecture Series: Shannan Mattiace – 11/1

Posted on October 31, 2023 | Filed under Archive

All are invited to the next Karl W. Weiss ’87 Faculty Lecture Series, sponsored by the Academic Support Committee. The featured speaker, Shannan Mattiace, will be giving a talk titled “Criminal Violence and Security in Mexico: A Collaborative Research Agenda” on Wednesday, November 1, at 7 PM in the Quigley Auditorium. Below is a brief description of Prof. Mattiace’s talk:

Criminal violence is currently Mexico’s biggest policy challenge, with over 350,000 dead and 110,000 disappeared since the start of the drug wars in 2006. This talk is a synthesis of several research papers with three co-authors, including Tomas Nonnenmacher. I focus on two very different Mexican states: Yucatán, which has been relatively immune from homicidal violence, and Guerrero, where violence is high but where Indigenous peoples have kept violence relatively low through a community justice and policing system.
