On the night of this year’s election, the nation will witness history as it selects either the first Black President or the first female Vice President. Experts from across the country will be buzzing in the media with insights and predictions as votes are tabulated. One of those experts is the Colleges’ own Professor of Political Science Iva Deutchman, who has been a regular in the media this election season with interviews ranging from Wisconsin Public Radio to Rochester’s Democrat and Chronicle, and speaking engagements in the Geneva community at Irene’s Coffee House to the League of Women Voters.
On election night, Deutchman has been invited by Finger Lakes News Radio to offer her political insights. From 9 until 10 p.m., Deutchman will give her analysis of the presidential election as the results come in and also give her perspective on the Congressional races.
Deutchman holds a Ph.D. and a master’s degree in political science from the University of Pennsylvania, and a bachelor’s degree from Hofstra University in political science and economics. She has a long list of publications in major journals, the latest of which is “Fundamentalist Christians, Raunch Culture and Post-industrial Capitalism,” Journal of Religion and Popular Culture, Summer 2008.
