Rothbaum Lecture Series
The Julian J. Rothbaum Distinguished Lecture in Representative Government is sponsored and administered by the Carl Albert Congressional Research and Studies Center of the University of Oklahoma. The Lecture is delivered in odd-numbered years to avoid conflict with debate surrounding the congressional elections. Each Rothbaum lecturer is invited to give a series of three related lectures during a period of one week. The lectures are free and open to the public. These three lectures, suitably revised and extended, are then published as a book by the University of Oklahoma Press.
The Carl Albert Center periodically hosts a Community Coffee Klatch to discuss politics. "Klatch" - a casual social gathering for coffee and good converstaion.
