Election Event Series: "Making Sense of the US-American Presidency Four Years Later"  

The Department of American Studies invites students, scholars, and guests to join our election event series and continue to gain a more thorough understanding of the American presidency and the 2024 presidential elections. Five (online) guest speakers from Appalachian State University, California State University, Chico, Emerson College, Emory University, and the University of Notre Dame will provide us with expert opinions and analyses, while the film screenings at the Leokino will allow us to discuss US-American politics and its cinematic depictions. During our election night viewing party on Nov. 5, 2024, we will follow the election in real time and test our presidential knowledge in a topical Pub Quiz co-organized by our student representatives.

For more information (dates, times and locations), please visit the event series website. | All events are open to the public.
