COMMUNITY SYMPOSIUM REFLECTS ON LESSONS LEARNED

Wednesday, May 26, 1999 - 17:00
Santa Barbara, CA

The Clinton/Lewinsky/Starr affair

Now that the political dust has settled around the Clinton impeachment, did our constitutional system work the way it should? What damage, if any, has been done?

The Symposium, an ongoing program sponsored by the UCSB General Affiliates and Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, will hold a free forum on June 2 for community members interested in dissecting the event that sidetracked Congress from the nation's business.

Juliet Williams, assistant professor of law and society at UCSB, will lead the two-hour symposium, "Did the System Work? Reflections on the Clinton/Lewinsky/Starr Affair, " beginning at 5 p.m. at the University Club, 1332 Santa Barbara St., in Santa Barbara.

"The Clinton/Lewinsky/Starr affair offers significant lessons about how our system works," said Williams,

"and about the meaning of concepts like "popular sovereignty" and "the rule of law" in a constitutional democracy like our own."

Williams received a Ph.D. in government from Cornell University. A UCSB faculty member since 1998, she is also an assistant professor in the Women's Studies Program.

Williams has published papers on political theory, American politics and feminist thought. Her latest project is a book on the meaning of limited government in liberal theory.
