Saint Anselm College faculty regularly speak to journalists on issues as diverse as medical ethics; getting older children to read; the authenticity of ancient movie sets; religion in popular fiction; love poetry for the novice writer; and chemicals in ground water.

Our faculty also examine New Hampshire and national politics from a variety of perspectives, and are well known to journalists nationwide for their analysis of presidential politics, voter behavior, the New Hampshire primary, tax policy, and political crises and events.
