In a presentation titled “The Road to Redistricting Reform” Wayne State University political science professor Kevin Deegan-Krause Ph.D. will provide an overview of what gerrymandering is, it’s negative aspects and how best to prevent it. This event will be held on Wednesday, April 18 at Baldwin Library in Birmingham.
Deegan-Krause received a bachelor of art’s degree in economics from Georgetown University in 1990, and a Ph.D. in government and international studies from the university of Notre Dame in 2000.

“He is the recipient of the Truman and Fulbright Scholarships as well as of IREX Individual Advanced Research Grants. He has served as a consultant for the U.S. Department of State on the politics of central Europe,” said a press release. “His ongoing research focuses on the transformation of political parties and he is working with Tim Haughton of the University of Birmingham on a book entitled ‘The New Party Challenge: Cycles of Party Birth and Death in Europe and Beyond.'”
