The event is free and open to the public, and a reception will follow.

Robinson, drawing on his established career as a scholar and policy maker, will present three stories to illustrate salient features of FCC regulation: (1) a story about the construction of regulatory paradigms, specifically the natural monopoly model, (2) a story of regulatory parthenogenesis, or the FCC’s self-defining qualities, and (3) a story about the symbols that drive or distort regulation, particularly in spectrum allocation policy.

Glen O. Robinson joined the University of Virginia faculty in 1976 after serving as Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission from 1974-1976. He practiced law with the Washington, D.C., firm Covington & Burling from 1961 to 1967. He is an honors graduate of Stanford Law School and Harvard University. Robinson has served as a consultant to the U.S. State Department on communications matters, and in 1979 was Ambassador and U.S. Representative to the World Administrative Radio Conference in Geneva.
