Milano Launches New Course and Event Series: Politics and Policy

VotingRightsFlyerThe Politics and Policy series is a thought-provoking, stimulating series of courses and events. The series will combine in-class lectures and assignments with the hands-on experience and intellects of both American and Global politics experts in order to dissect the 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections, while also providing an international perspective. From the evolution of the two party system, to soccer’s impact on world politics, to the use of the propaganda ideology symbolism and political PR savvy to influence messaging, these courses and events will showcase the insights and practical knowledge of Milano professors and introduce students to a critical understanding of a presidential campaign and its inner workings.

The first event in the series will be an examination of voting rights in the U.S. election and the continuing fight for equal access to the ballot. This event’s panel will be moderated by Assistant Professor of Politics and Advocacy Jeff Smith, and invited panelists include The Nation’s Ari Berman, author of the forthcoming Give us the Ballot; the New York Times’ national political correspondent Maggie Haberman; Fordham political science professor Christina Greer; and Barbara Arwine of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights.

“Examination of Voting Rights in the U.S. Elections” will be held at the Theresa Lang Center (55 W. 13th Street, I202) on Monday, September 21st at 6:30 P.M.

Be a part of the conversation online as well as in class with #politicsandpolicy.
