Political Scientist to Speak at Susquehanna
Published on February 14, 2014
Antje Schwennicke, a postdoctoral fellow with the Penn Program on Democracy, Citizenship and Constitutionalism (DCC) at the University of Pennsylvania, will visit Susquehanna University on Feb. 25. She will present a free, public lecture on political ideology and measurement issues at 6 p.m. in Room 317 of Fisher Hall.
Titled “Lost in Translation: Differences in the Meaning of Left-Right Identification in Advanced Industrial Democracies,” the lecture is part of Susquehanna’s series of public events addressing diversity, equality and social justice issues.
Schwennicke received her doctorate degree in political science from Indiana University and her master’s degree from the Free University of Berlin. At the University of Pennsylvania, she works with undergraduate recipients of the DCC grant and teaches a course on social policy and citizenship in advanced industrial societies.
Schwennicke’s research has involved comparative public opinion, social policy, and political communication and media framing in Western Europe.
