Post-Election Faculty Panel: Perspectives from Across the Disciplines


What is the short and long term impact of this election? What has this election done to the stability of, and our faith in the integrity of, some of our fundamental democratic institutions — the election process itself, the news media, polling, the primary election process, etc. What is the future of the two major parties? Has our political dialogue been irreparably coarsened? Will our electorate become even more polarized? What does this election mean for foreign policy and our relationships with other countries? These are just some of the questions we would like to discuss with the panelists: Stephen Nichols (Political Science), Jill Watts (History), Dino Bozonelos  (Political Science), Brian Dolber (Communication), Raj Pillai (CoBA Management), and Mary Jo Poole (Sociology).

To learn more and participate in the discussion please attend the event on November 10 from 12:00 noon to 1:30 pm in Markstein Hall 210. To engage a discussion or ask a question, add a comment to this Post-Election post. If you have questions email

This is a campus-wide event inclusive of faculty, staff, and students who are all encouraged to join the post-election discussion.
