Students Report on Tilley’s Talk

Hobart senior Leighton Johnson and William Smith senior Allison Robin, working as interns at the Finger Lakes Times, covered a talk given by Virginia Tilley to the League of Women Voters of Geneva last week. The article appeared in the Sunday, Oct. 6, issue of the Finger Lakes Times.

According to the article, “Tilley explored the motivations for, and the possible consequences of, an attack on Iraq. She addressed an audience of about 50 people, one third of whom were not League members.”

Tilley, an assistant professor of political science at Hobart and William Colleges, specializes in the politics of economic development and ethnic conflict. She spent nearly two years doing research in the Middle East while living in Israel and the West Bank, and she joined the faculty of Hobart and William Smith Colleges in 1997. In addition to teaching, she coordinates the development studies and international relations programs, the article reported.
