Views from the U 2018

January 8, 2019

Election years bring our flagship event, Views from the U, to the McNamara Alumni Center. “The Political Science of Election 2018” edition featured tremendous analysis for 200+ attendees from some of our star faculty members.

Kathryn Pearson held court on what the elections will mean for the next Congress, the record number of women running for office, and Minnesota’s electoral competitiveness.  Michael Minta and Andrew Karch examined federal campaign spending and the importance of state elections, respectively. Mark Bell gave a terrific—and at times deeply unsettling—overview of the geopolitical situation in North Korea. John Coleman, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, was, as always, an able and thought-provoking moderator. 

The planning has already started for 2020’s Views from the U! We hope you will join us.
