Current Issue: Volume 47 Issue 03

From the Editor: A wide variety of issue and topic are addressed in the July issue ranging from the symposium on higher education, the role of IR scholars, and world politics; the status of the Jewish vote in the 2012 elections; misperceptions of political figures linked to biases in ideology, religion, and media use. What does it mean to be “Liked”? Authors share their experiences in adopting a Facebook page for their department. In The Teacher section, learn how one professor with her students started a literacy program in a red light district in Guatemala City and how it grew to be a 501(c)3 and changed lives in the community. Finally, frustrated with student papers that don’t answer the question you meant to ask? Check out some ideas on writing a better exam or paper assignment. And more in the July issue of PS—always timely, always interesting.
