Lottery Legalization Talk at Lied Library

Please join the Center for Gaming Research in a talk entitled, “The Big Game: Dynamics of State Lottery Legalization” by April's Gaming Research fellow Christopher Wetzel.

Wetzel is an assistant professor of sociology at Stonehill College.  His project looks at how issues of race, class, and gender have shaped debates over gaming legalization since the 1930s.  His research at UNLV will examine how casino proprietors, civic organizations, and elected officials in Nevada have framed subsequent efforts to establish pari-mutuel wagering and a state lottery.
