American Windsorites to gather for Obama convention speech

It is important to stay on top of political developments in his home country, says Dan Edelstein, even when it’s right next door.

Edelstein, academic director of the Windsor Research Data Centre in the Leddy Library, is a US citizen living in Windsor. He will join fellow members of Democrats Abroad on Thursday, September 6, to watch president Barack Obama’s speech accepting the Democratic nomination.

Lecture to discuss techniques for working with undocumented data

Helping a history professor examine U.S. public opinion in the 1930s and ’40s using old surveys required him to turn archaeologist, says Dan Edelstein, an academic data specialist in the Leddy Library.

He will discuss the experience in a free public lecture, “The Data Consultant as Archaeologist: Digging for meaning in World War II era U.S. public opinion surveys,” Friday, May 18, at 11 a.m. in room 302, West Leddy Library.
