Robert Watson, professor of American Studies in the College of Liberal Education, wrote the October 2012 cover/feature story “The Battle for the Ballot Box” for Collier's Magazine. His piece examined the 2012 election as a contest for the nation's heart and soul.

He is also offering a series of free talks about his new book, Affairs of State, for a dozen public libraries across South Florida. The book was covered by C-SPAN’s Book TV program.
