Taylor A. Barnette ’10, in collaboration with students and alums of HWS and other colleges, has founded a website, www.pculpa.com. According to Barnette, the site “aims to provide a platform for thinkers to discuss domestic and foreign affairs from across the political spectrum, and the globe.” Its first article was published Oct. 1.
Among the first guest essayists is Professor of Political Science Iva Deutchman, who authored, “Tea for Who?” In it, she notes, “One might conclude that the Tea Party was merely another faction within the Republican Party, as are fundamentalist Christians. Tea Party members and establishment Republicans both deny such a relationship. However, Tea Party candidates have run exclusively against established Republicans.”
The full article by Deutchman can be read online.
In addition to Barnette, HWS alums Felipe Estefan ’08, Alexander MacDonald ’10, Andrew Smith ’10 and Josh Sargent ’10 have authored articles for the site.
PCULPA is now seeking to bring on juniors, seniors and alums of HWS (of any academic discipline) to write and blog for the website. Those interested in submitting work for consideration should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and include college major/minor, a writing sample and/or relevant work experience. More information is available on the website.

He has traveled in the U.S., the Middle East, and China, where he studied Mandarin and Chinese philosophy at Peking University. He currently resides in New York City. He is PCULPA’s CEO and editor-in-chief.
