James R. Henson, Ph.D., Government, UT Austin

This three-week course takes students on a brief tour of Texas politics in the weeks leading up to the 2008 general election. We'll discuss the major competitive races in Texas; the impact of the presidential election on state politics; and speculate on the nature of Texas politics in the post-Bush era. Students have the opportunity to discuss topics such as polling, campaigns, and the state of play among the political parties. Join us as we look at the unique 2008 election season through the lens of Texas politics.

James Henson directs the Texas Politics project at The University of Texas at Austin. This project includes the Texas Politics Web site, an open access comprehensive textbook about Texas politics and government, and the Texas Politics Speaker Series, which brings participants from all walks of Texas government to the university campus every semester. He is Associate Director of the College of Liberal Arts Instructional Technology Services, and a lecturer in the Government Department, where he also directs the internship program.
