IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Newly Added Lecture!
Putting Election 2016 in Context
If current events are any indication, we may find ourselves with several questions about the outcome of the 2016 election. Join us for this special add-on lecture where Dr. Jaclyn Kettler and Dr. Justin Vaughn will provide analytical commentary and lead a discussion focused on the results of the 2016 election. With an eye toward the presidential race, the battle for Congress, and the Idaho political landscape, they will discuss historic similarities and what the future likely holds. (This lecture is open to all members but will be particularly relevant for those who were enrolled in Dr. Vaughn’s course “Presidential Elections” last spring.)
Presenters: Dr. Jaclyn Kettler, Assistant Professor and Dr. Justin Vaughn, Associate Professor, Political Science, Boise State University
Date and time: Thu., Nov. 17, 10 a.m. – noon
Cost: This lecture is free but registration is required.
