Fine talks about Watergate at next CRJ Seniors meeting


Dr. Terri Susan Fine

THE CRJ Seniors will host Terri Susan Fine, Ph.D., who will speak on "The Watergate Years: What do they mean to us today?" at the next CRJ Seniors meeting, Oct. 20, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The presentation will focus on the long term impact of the break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate office complex and the scandal that ensued following the break-in. Politics and government has changed in meaningful ways including the role of the media in news reporting and as part of electoral politics, and the role of the U.S. Supreme Court in interpreting the U.S. Constitution, and the informal qualifications that we ascribe to potential presidents.

Fine is professor of political science at the University of Central Florida where she also serves as associate director of the Lou Frey Institute and as content specialist for the Florida Joint Center for Citizenship. She teaches courses on American politics, religion and politics, civil rights, political psychology and women and politics. She is the recipient of ten teaching awards and four professional service awards. Her publications have appeared in several academic journals and books. She serves on the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando's Community Relations Committee and is a member of the Board of Directors of the Jewish Pavilion.

Fine will be speaking first in the Schott Chapel, followed by luncheon in the Social Hall. Reservations for lunch ($8 for nonmembers) are requested. Contact Helene Becker hfrbecker@aol.com or 407-221-3958.
