Raising a royal
A HuffPost Live
webcast on the cost of raising Britain’s new royal baby featured
Elisabeth Cawthon, UT Arlington associate professor of history and an
expert on the British royal family. Predicting how Prince William’s son
would be raised, Cawthon said William’s mother, Princess Diana, set a
new standard for maternal involvement with royal children. “Diana took
an extraordinary, almost unprecedented personal interest in her two
children,” Cawthon said.
The outlook for talks
UT Arlington assistant professor of political science Brent Sasley was featured in a Voice of America
story about efforts to restart talks between Israeli and Palestinian
leaders. Sasley doubts any final agreement will come out of this next
round of talks, should they even take place. “I’m skeptical that
Netanyahu and Abbas would be the ones to sign and end of conflict
agreement,” he said.
