Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics Announces 2008-2009 Resident Scholars

Oregon Law Professor Michelle McKinley and Ethnic Studies and Political Science Professor Daniel HoSang were recently named Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics 2008-2009 Resident Scholars.

Each year, the Wayne Morse Center hosts two UO faculty members as Resident Scholars, one from the School of Law and one from another UO department in an appropriate discipline related to the current Morse Center theme.  Resident Scholars help frame the theme, advise the Center on programs and work on academic writings. 

As a Resident Scholar, Professor McKinley will complete her manuscript, “Bringing in Outsiders: ’Race,’ Nation and Cultural Citizenship in Refugee and Asylum Law,” which focuses on fundamental issues of gender, culture and citizenship. 

Professor HoSang will complete his award-winning research on race and ballot measures, “Race, Direct Democracy and the Future of Civil Rights,” which examines how ballot initiatives on racial issues shape the terrain of state and national politics. 

Congratulations, Professors McKinley and HoSang!
