Athens Chautauqua Society Virtual Talk “Through History’s Lens/Clouded or Clear — Looking Back at the 2020 Election,” Tuesday, November 10, 10 am to 12 noon EDT
What happened? Who happened? Are we still counting votes? Are we in the courts? We’ve barely recovered … isn’t this the last thing we want to talk about? But we can’t stop – it’s so confusing, and interesting … and important! So trying to make some sense of it all, let’s get some help from history.
Through history’s lens – clouded or clear – let’s see what made a difference: voter suppression … foreign interference … climate change … immigration … electoral college … pandemic? With help from a presidential election historian, we’ll ask whether America has ever experienced a presidential election anything like this last one … whether this, indeed, may be our last one (and, if not, why so many were so worried that it might be). We’ll try to answer history’s questions: “Now (or once the votes are counted), where do we stand … and are we still standing?”
Presented by Charles B. Schudson, Wisconsin Reserve Judge Emeritus and law professor.
