Pomona College Hosts Panel on the California Recall Election
On Tuesday, September 30, beginning at 4:15 p.m., the Pomona College Politics Department will host a panel discussion on "Recall Politics," covering the social, political and economic forces explain the recall movement in California; what issues will influence the outcome of the election; and what are the longer-range implications for California.
The panelists are:
- Eleanor Brown, the James Irvine Professor of Economics at Pomona College, is a distinguished researcher on economic issues in the nonprofit sector and other social spaces where resources are allocated in the absence of profit maximization (e.g., the family, government). A 1975 graduate of Pomona, she is an award-winning teacher whose portfolio includes a class on public finance.
- Jose Calderon, a professor in Sociology and Chicano Studies at Pitzer College, has published widely on social movements and campus-community partnerships. He is known to his students and colleagues as a tireless advocate for social justice. His numerous civic engagements include leadership of the Latino Round Table of the East San Gabriel Valley and the Pomona Valley.
- Kenneth Miller, an assistant professor of Government at Claremont McKenna College, attended Harvard Law School, following his 1985 graduation from Pomona, and entered private practice with Morrison and Foerster, before acquiring his doctorate in political science at UC Berkeley. His research focuses on direct democracy - initiative, referendum, recall.
The panel presentation is open to the public and will be held in room 107 of the Carnegie Building (425 N. College Avenue, Claremont). Refreshments follow the discussion.
