The 2016 Presidential campaign has been the most polarizing in recent American history. After all the ballots have been cast, it’s time to assess how we got here and what comes next. And who better to explore these questions than political scientists from the College of Arts & Sciences?

The Department of Political Science is hosting a post-election event featuring a panel of four faculty with expertise in public opinion, presidential power, congressional policy making, and Latino politics.  They include:

  • Mark A. Smith, author of Secular Faith: How Culture Has Trumped Religion in American Politics
  • Becca Thorpe, author of The American Warfare State: The Domestic Politics of Military Spending
  • Sophia Jordán Wallace, author of United We Stand: Latino Representation in Congress (in progress)
  • John Wilkerson, co-author of Congress and the Politics of Problem Solving

The event is free and open to the public. Join us! See details at right.
