Dr. Vilma Bamaceda, Associate Professor of Political Science, addressed the Men of Letters on "The 2012 Presidential Race: Contending Visions & Political Discourses." Dr. Balmaceda analyzed the prevailing political discourses of the Democratic and the Republican parties as they reflect contending visions for the common good in the context of the presidential race in the United States. She also provided reflections about the way in which the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court (January 2010) has affected the current presidential race. Dr. Balmaceda is also the Director of the Center for Scholarship and Global Engagement.
