A Letter from the Political Science Department

This journal presents some of the best undergraduate research on politics that has been done by Susquehanna students throughout the past academic year, highlighting work that has been done in classes and in senior capstone projects in Economics, History, Political Science, and Public Policy. In addition to recognizing high quality student scholarship, we hope that this journal will encourage upcoming students in their research efforts by showing them the kind of work that can be done by students who engage in research that is both rigorous and creative. Congratulations to Grace Dunnigan, Tyler Burke, and Bailey Hackenberry for setting a high bar for future students. While the journal is supported by the Department, the work is done by the student members of the Editorial Board who solicit and review manuscripts, choose the finalists, and prepare the document to go to press. This journal would not exist without the many hours of work they put into this project. The final product is a testament to their efforts. Thanks to this year’s editorial board: Megan Cantwell, '20, Editor in Chief Olivia McGaw, '22 Morgan Dubbs, '21 Jordan Sanderson, '20 Kara Little, '20 Thomas Tang '21 Special recognition goes to Alyson Lawrence, '20, a Graphic Design major who produced the cover art. The final thank you goes to Mr. Brian Gilbert '10 who is the founder of this publication. Without his ideas and encouragement this journal would never have been launched. We’re proud to turn his idea into a tradition.
