Professor Invited to Present at International Conference

2005. 10. 22.

CALDWELL (Idaho)- Albertson College of Idaho professor of economics Dr. James Angresano has been invited to take his work international. He will share his theories in Puerto Rico next month.

Angresano will present a paper, entitled 'Orthodox economic development theories: The basis for recipes that perpetuate injustice', at the Plenary Session of the Latina and Latino Critical Legal Theory Conference. The conference is being held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, October 6-9, 2005. The paper focuses on why development advice given to Latin American countries has not resulted in improved development in most of the continent's countries.

In addition to presenting the paper at the conference, Angresano will soon see the work in print. The paper will be published in a symposium that is jointly published by the Berkeley La Raza Law Journal and the UCLA Chicano-Latino Law Review.

Angresano has received three Fulbright Scholarships in recent years. In both February 2003 and February 2004, Angresano received a Fulbright Senior Specialist grant to lecture on economic development and international economics at Cairo University in Cairo, Egypt. In 1991 he taught at the University of Varna in Bulgaria on a Fulbright Scholarship.

In March 2005, Angresano attended the Institute of World Economics and Politics at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in Beijing, China to present his research papers on the political and economic integration of Asia, China's development, and the growth of university and private sector research centers. He has also been a visiting professor at the University of Trento in Italy.

Angresano received his bachelor's degree from Lehigh University, an M.B.A from New York University and a doctorate from the University of Tennessee. He has been teaching at CofI since 1995.
