Workshop Named for Ostroms
This morning, the Indiana University Board of Trustees officially renamed the Workshop as the "Vincent and Elinor Ostrom Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis." Many Workshoppers have been referring to it informally as the "Ostrom Workshop" for quite some time because few outsiders know what the "Workshop" is but everyone knows Lin (and political theorists are only just beginning to rediscover Vincent's very important contributions to the literature). Given all that the Ostroms have done for IU it is only fitting that their chief legacy to the University - the Workshop - will bear their names. The official press release is here.
