Farnsworth Presents Research at National Communication Conference

Stephen Farnsworth, professor of political science and director of the University’s Center for Leadership and Media Studies, recently presented a research paper, “Studying the Presidency after 9/11: Re-considering Presidential Character in Domestic and International Contexts,” at the National Communication Association conference in Baltimore, Maryland. The paper is also a chapter in a new book: 9/11 and the Academy: Responses in the Liberal Arts and the 21st Century World. The book is edited by Mark Finney, a 1999 graduate of Mary Washington, and Matthew Shannon and was just published by Palgrave Macmillan. Dr. Finney, who is now an associate professor of Mass Communications at Emory and Henry College, Emory, Virginia, was one of Dr. Farnsworth’s first political science students at Mary Washington two decades ago.
