Professor of Political Science Iva E. Deutchman shared her views about the 2008 presidential race in a story in the Friday, Feb. 1 issue of the Canandaigua Daily Messenger.
” … Three or four weeks ago, you could have given up [Arizona Sen. John] McCain for dead, and now he is likely to be the Republican nominee,” she said. “That is just shocking.”
Deutchman, an expert on women and voting behavior, women in government, the influence of the mass media on politics and more, has been published widely in major journals, including “When Feminists Don’t Fit: The Case of Pauline Hanson,” in the International Feminist Journal of Politics. Most recently she co-authored “The Ideology of Moderate Republicans in the House,” published in Forum.
At Hobart and William Smith Colleges, she leads many efforts such as the annual “Day on the Hill” program in Washington, D.C., when students visit several federal agencies, the Senate and the House of Representatives, both political parties' national offices and several lobbying organizations, as well as meet with alumni and alumnae working in the area.
A member of the faculty since 1987, Deutchman holds a bachelor's degree from Hofstra University and her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.
