 UREP Fellow #2

I seek one or more undergraduate research assistants to assist in a series of studies that investigate what happens at U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings, including questions related to gender and racial bias at the hearings. The research assistant(s) may compile readings on gender and racial bias; collect and analyze data on the questions and answers given at the hearings; and examine newspaper and other media coverage of the hearings. This is a 1 to 3 credit assistantship.
