Steven F. Goldstone Endowed Term Chairs: in Politics, Dr. Jack Nagel

SAS Dean Samuel H. Preston has announced that Drs. Samuel Freeman, Jack Nagel, and Andrew Postlewaite have been appointed to the Steven F. Goldstone Endowed Term Chairs for Philosophy, Politics and Economics.

Dr. Nagel is a professor of political science and chairman of the Department of Political Science. He received his B.A. from Swarthmore College in 1966, his M.Phil. from Yale University in 1970, and his Ph.D. from Yale in 1972. His research and teaching focus on democratic theory and the closely related topics of voting systems, social choice, and political participation. He has taught at Penn since 1971, and he has chaired the graduate programs in political science and public policy analysis, served as acting dean of the School of Public and Urban Policy, and taught for the Fels Center of Government. He is also director of the College's Washington Semester Program, which offers students first-hand experience in the political and governmental process while they take courses taught by Penn faculty in the nation's capital.

His awards include grants from NSF and the Fulbright and IRIS programs. A former co-editor of the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, he currently serves on the editorial boards of that journal, Electoral Studies, the Journal of Theoretical Politics, and Political Science. He is a member of the Education Advisory Committee of the Center for Voting and Democracy and has been a visiting professor at Swarthmore College, Bryn Mawr College, the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, and the University of Essex in England.

The Steven F. Goldstone Endowed Term Chairs for Philosophy, Politics, and Economics were established earlier this year (Almanac Febuary 27, 2001) by Steven F. Goldstone, retired chairman of Nabisco Group Holdings. Mr. Goldstone, who graduated from the College in 1967, joined Nabisco in 1995. Previously, he was a senior partner with the New York City law firm of Davis Polk and Wardwell.
