Speakers included John Owen—Chair, Paul Freedman—Associate Chair, and Professor White's peers in department's political theory subfield, Lawrie Balfour, Colin Bird, George Klosko, and Jennifer Rubenstein.

The department is pleased to announce that the Virginia Senate introduced a bill commending Professor White. The bill was drafted by a former student of Professor White's, graduate alum Ross Mittiga, now Assistant Professor at Instituto de Ciencia Política, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. The bill was introduced in the Virginia Senate by Senator Creigh Deeds and and in the Virginia House by Delegates Steven Landes and David Toscano. The  bill is Senate Joint Resolution No. 316.

We are honored to have worked with Professor White.
