Berggren publishes Carter re-election series

Dr. Jason Berggren, associate professor of political science, is publishing an article series for the the Americus Times-Recorder on President Jimmy Carter's 1980 re-election effort. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Carter’s campaign. Below is the link to my article that was published today. Links to each article in the series are available below.

“I am a candidate for reelection”; President Carter Enters 1980 Race (Jan. 10, 2020)

In “Vote of Confidence”, Carter Whips Kennedy in Iowa (Jan. 28, 2020)

On Kennedy’s Home Court, Pres. Carter Scores Win in New Hampshire (Feb. 26, 2020)

The most recent installment in the series, "'Sweet to Defeat Kennedy': Pres. Carter Wins Super Tuesday and More," was published in the Saturday, March 28, 2020 issue of the Times-Recorder and can be found on pages A10-A11.

Berggren also published a 12-article series on the 1976 campaign four years ago.

Fisk publishes paper on implicit attitudes about race

Dr. Gary Fisk, professor of psychology, recently published a paper on implicit attitudes about race. The leading test for these attitudes, the Implicit Association Test, does not seem to correspond very closely to more direct expressions of racism. The reason for this lack of relationship has been uncertain and prompted much interest. Fisk tested the possibility that maybe the geographic region of people who were sampled might have an impact on this question. In the study, he found not much of a relationship between these forms of attitudes, which is similar to previous studies. Essentially, being from the South does not seem to make an impact.
