Political Science Professor Presents Paper at Conference

Dr. Andrea Grove, assistant professor of political science at Westminster College, recently presented "A Different World: Teaching strategies for North-South Courses" at the annual International Studies Association annual meeting in San Diego.

"The massive and widening gap in living standards and way of life between the wealthy North and Global South poses urgent problems for policymakers, scholars, and students – those who will shape the response of the future world – to comprehend," Grove writes.  "Our paper, [co-written with Christopher Scholl] discusses pedagogical and values-based questions that arise in teaching about the Global South."

While at the meeting, Grove also served as secretary for the Active Learning in International Affairs (ALIAS) section meeting, and served on a panel discussion about "The Processes of Peace and Reconciliation in Divided Societies."

Grove, who has been with Westminster College since 2000, earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia, master's from Lancaster University, and Ph.D. from the Ohio State University.

Contact Grove at (724) 946-7254 or e-mail for more information.
