Dr. Jennifer Fredette, Assistant Professor of Political Science, is teaching POLS 4902: Special Topics in Law and Politics in the Spring 2018 semester.

This course contributes to the Making and Breaking the Law theme, sponsored by the Center for Law, Justice & Culture.

The course meets Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 3:05 until 4 p.m.

This course covers American political development, civil liberties, race, gender, and sexuality, all through the analysis of comic books.

Students will become acquainted with American political development literature while exploring the connections between pop culture and politics. The course is open to all students.

Fredette’s areas of focus include public law, specifically regarding citizenship, social movements, and legal mobilization. She is currently working on two research projects: a paper looking at the French state of emergency, surveillance, and police violence and another paper that examines legal claims for reparations for slavery on Martinique.

Fredette earned her undergraduate degree from the University of the Pacific before earning a master’s and Ph.D. from the University of Washington.
