I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Redistricting Resources

This is a little late for the first round of papers, but here are some additional resources for redistricting:
  • (shameless self promotion) the Rose Institute's RedistrictinginAmerica.org has overviews and profiles of every congressional district in every state, along with summaries of each state's redistricting process
  • Justin Levitt, a professor at Loyola Law School, has a similar site called All About Redistricting, which also includes frequent updates about court cases in progress
  • The Rose Institute has an interactive viewer of California's new lines, old lines, and all the draft plans in between
  • Redistricting Partners, a consultancy, has nice .jpeg and PDF maps of California's new districts
  • Rick Hasen's Election Law Blog has great coverage of court battles, etc.
  • On Twitter:
    • @redistrictUS, @rickhasen, @_justinlevitt_, @CiceroAPI, @wedrawthelines, @redistrict, @udrawthelines
