DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire’s year-long Sidore Lecture Series “Exploring Democracy at Home and Abroad” tackles the complicated issues of how racism jeopardizes the quality of American democracy and the fairness of the electoral process.

The lecture “Confronting Racism in American Democracy” is Thursday, Nov. 29, 2007, at 4 p.m. in the Memorial Union Building Theater II. It is free and open to the public.

Stephanie McLean, director of research for Ipsos Reid in Canada, will present the lecture. McLean conducts quantitative and qualitative research for a range of public and private sector clients. With an academic background in quantitative public opinion research, she is well versed in a wide variety of psychometric data analysis techniques. Her research interests lie in quantitative political psychology, including all public opinion, voting behavior, policy attitudes, long-term public opinion trends, racial politics, and democratic and governmental legitimacy.

The Saul O Sidore Memorial Lecture Series was established in 1965 in memory of Saul O Sidore of Manchester, New Hampshire. The purpose of the series is to offer the University community and the state of New Hampshire programs that raise critical and sometimes controversial issues facing our society. The University of New Hampshire Center for the Humanities sponsors the programs.
