GIA Doctoral Student Interviewed on Trend Scan
Mirela Iamandi Stimus, graduate teaching associate and doctoral candidate in Government Ph.D. program, recently appeared on “Trend Scan”, a TV show hosted by the Romanian media outlet Adevarul Holding (producers: Dan Ionescu & Adrian Zabava). As a project dedicated to the re-professionalization of politics and communication in European Union, “Trend Scan” hosts analysts, political consultants, members of academia and of the political elite with international competence and various backgrounds, discussing, in depth, tendencies and phenomena in Trans - Atlantic politics. In her capacity as former political journalist and USF instructor, Ms. Stimus was interviewed regarding the social media’s role in political participation, a comparison between the American and Romanian climates. The topic sprung from the “Facebook Revolution”, an event that changed the outcome of the presidential elections in Romania at the end of last year.
The Department of Government & International Affairs is very proud to announce that Pamela Anderson, the Academic Advisor for International Studies, was recently awarded the University’s Outstanding Undergraduate Advising Award. This prestigious award is given annually to a small number of undergraduate advisors across the University to recognize excellence, innovation and effectiveness in advising. Congratulations Pamela!

Two USF students participate in Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference [05.22.2013]
To be chosen to attend the annual Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference (NAFAC) is a unique honor with lasting impact. The two students who represented the University of South Florida this year, Lianet Vazquez and Stephanie Germeroth, recognize the value all the more as they continue to reflect on their three-day immersion in some of the world’s most pressing political matters and contact with renowned experts. There’s nothing else quite like it.
