Not My Generation
Underwhelmed by American political media? Looking for a better source of news and information entertainingly delivered by two professors and political scientists who are complete nerds on opposite sides of the political spectrum? Not My Generation is the pod for you!
Not My Generation explores social and political issues at a state, national, and international level from the viewpoints of the millennial generation (Dr. Stacey) and Gen X (Prof. Davenport). We analyze current events, advances in political science, state government, and so much more!
Professor James Davenport was appointed Associate Dean for Social Sciences at Rose State College in August of 2021. He has served as a professor of political science at Rose State since 2014 and earned tenure in 2019. James brings a wealth of practical experience in government, media, public opinion research, and small business ownership to his classes. These experiences have shaped how he approaches teaching and have contributed to his earning the Rose State College “Excellence in Teaching Award” as well as being a two-time recipient of the Oklahoma Political Science “Teacher of the Year Award.” James is sought after by local, state, & amp; national journalists for his insights on political issues and has published commentaries in a variety of publications. He is a past president of the Oklahoma Political Science Association and in the fall of 2023 launched the Center for Civic Engagement.
