Ask a Political Scientist: Election Season!

Thursdays, 7 – 9 pm, through Oct. 29, 2020.
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until October 29, 2020


Ask a Political Scientist is a free live-streaming show that brings the latest research and biggest ideas in political science straight to wherever you’re riding out this horrible year.

We’re doing a limited run of our popular show especially tailored to making sense of — and hopefully making a difference in — the upcoming election (have you heard? there’s an election coming up!). We’re talking:

-Polarization (Sept. 24): How did this happen, is it as horrible as it seems, and what do we do about it?

-The media (Oct. 1): Force for good? Force for evil? Somewhere in between?

-Misinformation (Oct. 8): The true end of humanity or just ONE of the true ends of humanity?

-Race and politics (Oct. 15): Where do racial attitudes come from, and how do they affect our politics, and vice versa?

-Political identity (Oct. 22): What does it mean to have a political identity, and how does it affect how we vote?

-Getting out the vote (Oct. 29): Seriously, though, why do people vote and how do we get more of them to do it!?

Join us every Thursday, 7p ET, between Sept. 24 and the election!
