bumped! not that anyone would fly in for it or anything...

i noted a couple weeks ago that shelly schaefer and i were speaking on voting and the civic reintegration of former prisoners on november 29th. alas, we've been bumped for another fine talk by a visiting job candidate. postponement offers a bit of relief for shelly (currently serving a tough four-month sentence as my sociology of deviance teaching assistant), but we're still readying the paper for asa submission by january 18th. despite this bumping, elaine hernandez, an nimh-nrsa predoctoral fellow, will present some of our coauthored work that week.

Wednesday, November 30 12:30 - 2:00 pm in 915 Social Sciences Building
Elaine Hernandez and Christopher Uggen, "Sources of Variation in State Mental Health Parity Laws."

i won't give away the punchline, but mandating mental health coverage appears to be a partisan political issue.

You should fly out to speak in the mid-atlantic area. that's easier than having a bunch of us fly in from Delaware.

sounds cool, delacrat. i'll come cheap if people want to hear about my research (i still have trouble getting my head around the idea that actual people would want to hear about my research) and i'll come free if i'm in or around the neighborhood. the book should be out in march, so i'm hoping to travel a bit around then.
