[But] once these women are in office, they can probably hold onto those positions.” -MIRYA HOLMAN, associate professor of political science, commenting in the Christian Science Monitor about the wave of women elected to office during the 2018 midterm elections. https://tulane.it/Mirya-Holman-christian-science-monitor

The Court and Alcohol

“I liked beer. I still like beer.” Long before Judge Brett Kavanaugh uttered these infamous words during confirmation hearings for his appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court in September, alcoholic beverages were a part of the life and work of the justices of the Supreme Court. In her new book, Glass and Gavel: The U.S. Supreme Court and Alcohol, Nancy Maveety, professor and chair of political science, discusses how the justices have participated in both the enjoyment and the restriction of beverage alcohol throughout our country’s history. http://tulane.it/the-court-and-alcohol
