Goodbye to 1989 and All That

Goodbye to 1989 and All That

By Michael Bernhard and Daniel O’Neill, University of Florida

It is this journal’s privilege to publish the APSA Presidential Address every year, and it is our honor to showcase the contributions to the profession of past president Janet Box-Steffensmeier, the Vernal Riffe Professor of Political Science and Professor of Sociology at the Ohio State University. She specializes in the fields of American politics and political methodology. Box-Steffensmeier is a pioneer—one of the first women to have a major impact in the traditionally male-dominated field of quantitative methodology. She has also served as the Dean for Social and Behavioral Science, the Dean for Graduate Affairs of the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Interim Executive Dean and Vice Provost, all at Ohio State. Her contributions to teaching, mentorship, and research have been recognized widely by Ohio State; the Political Methodology and the Elections, Public Opinion, and Voting Behavior Sections of APSA; the Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research; and the Women’s Caucus of the Midwest Political Science Association. Before serving as APSA president, she was president of the Midwest Political Science Association and the Political Methodology Section of APSA. In 2017 she was elected as a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
