The 2020 Presidential Election—An Online Seminar, October 30, 31, and November 7

Friday, October 30, 2020 at 2:30pm

Virtual Event

Consider possible election outcomes & implications on the eve of the November 3 vote

After the polarization and partisanship of the past three years, the election of 2020 is expected to be one of the most consequential of our times. What will the results augur for our country's future?

CAU favorite Glenn Altschuler will bring to bear his well-honed skills as a social analyst as he lectures on the cultural and ideological temper of the nation on the eve of the elections. Join him and professors David Bateman, Douglas Kriner, and Noliwe Rooks online as they discuss

  • The Trump and Biden campaigns
  • Voting rights and the history of polling
  • The outlook for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives
  • The political implications of the coronavirus, economic recession, and Black Lives Matter movement
  • The impact of the presidency on public education, with a focus on race and equity issues
  • What to look for on election night

Then, return a week later to analyze the election results and explore the outlook for 2021 and beyond. You're invited to join in a discussion of post-election results and attend a special Q-and-A forum for teens and adults interested in youth issues.
