Election Panel 2016

November 11, 2016

 

All too frequently, it appears that the presidential election cycle has left our public language coarse and rigid, our political coalitions badly fractured, and our outlets of news and opinion painfully inadequate for the difficult conversations and persistent challenges that lie ahead. In this season of boundless complexity and vociferous discontent, how can engaged citizens and students make sense of the bewildering political currents swirling all around them?

This event was the second of two panels on the upcoming presidential election, featuring faculty and staff from Grand Valley’s Department of Political Science, the Frederik Meijer Honors College, and the Division of University Relations. The panel will be chaired by Mark Richards, and commenters will include Polly Diven, Erika King, Matthew McLogan, and Jonathan White.
