FACULTY LECTURE DEBUNKS POLITICAL KNOWLEDGE GENDER GAP
Is there a gender gap when it comes to political knowledge? Dr. Melissa K. Miller, associate professor in the Bowling Green State University Department Political Science, will discuss the question during the College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Faculty Lecture Series on Wednesday (Nov. 8).

Her presentation, “Battle of the Sexes: Who Knows More About Politics?” begins at 4 p.m. in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union Theater (Room 206). Though decades of research have documented a gender gap in political knowledge, her innovative experiments demonstrate that the gender gap in political knowledge is merely an artifact of the way it is measured. Her talk sets the record straight.
Admission is free and open to the public. Following the lecture, the college will host a reception in the theater lobby.
