Noted political scientist to speak

Dr. Stephen J. Farnsworth

Dr. Stephen J. Farnsworth, professor of political science and international affairs and director of the Center for Leadership and Media Studies at the University of Mary Washington, will speak on “The State of Virginia Politics” at the Lake of the Woods Clubhouse on Sunday, Sept. 24.

The event will begin at 2 p.m. in the Lower Level of the LOW Clubhouse. Members will gather 30 minutes before for refreshments and socializing.

Dr. Farnsworth is the author of five books and is this year’s recipient of the Virginia Outstanding faculty Award from the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia.

One of the few political scientists who focus on Virginia politics, Dr. Farnsworth’s research has direct policy implications for both politicians and the news media. He handles hundreds of media contacts a year on local, state and international matters, and appears in or on such outlets as C-SPAN, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, National Public Radio and PBS News Hour.

He holds a Ph.D. and a master’s degree from Georgetown University and a bachelor’s degree from both the University of Missouri and Dartmouth College.

Dr. Farnsworth’s latest book is called “The Global President: International Media and the U.S. Government.”
