Coverdell Chair Constitution Week Roundtable


Updated: 09-23-2013

On September 18, 2013, it was standing room only as the Department of Government and Sociology hosted the Coverdell Chair Constitution Week Roundtable. Roger Coate, Paul D. Coverdell Chair of Public Policy and Professor of Political Science and Public Administration served as organizer and moderator of “Domestic Spying and Civil Liberties: PRISM and WikiLeaks, Snowden and Assange versus Hold and Obama – Is the Constitution Dead?”

Over one hundred students were in attendance as Ruth Carter, Professor, Jennifer Hammack, Associate Professor, Jerry Herbel, Associate Professor, all of the Department of Government and Sociology, joined fellow participants Andrew Whitaker,’12, Student at the University of Georgia School of Law and Mark Watkins, Georgia College student and Colonnade News Editor, to discuss the U.S. Constitution and privacy issues.

Recent events have made the right to privacy under the U.S. Constitution a controversial topic. Discussion was lively as more than 100 participants brought their knowledge of U.S. law and policy to bear in order to shed light on this provocative matter.

Constitution Week is a collaboration of the Georgia College Department of Government & Sociology, J. Whitney Bunting College of Business, Department of Mass Communication and the American Democracy Project.
