User Profile for Joel Rogers (jrogers)
Bio: Joel Rogers is professor of law, political science, and sociology, and director of the Center on Wisconsin Strategy (COWS), a research center and project laboratory for progressive state and local policy (see "Devolve This!," The Nation, August 30, 2004). Rogers has written widely on democratic theory, American politics, and comparative public policy. Recent books include Working Capital: Using the Power of Labor's Pensions, America's Forgotten Majority: Why the White Working Class Still Matters, and Metro Futures: Economic Solutions for the Cities and their Suburbs. As reflected in the Public Law & Private Power course he regularly teaches at the law school, his major legal interests follow from essentially political ones, viz. finding a successor to the institutions and mass politics of social democracy and the Keynesian welfare state. Rogers is a contributing editor of The Nation and Boston Review, and a MacArthur Foundation fellow. Newsweek recently identified him as one of the 100 Americans most likely to affect U.S. politics and culture in the 21st century.
