On October 6, 2016 Centre College was pleased to host a convocation featuring Dr. Julia Azari of Marquette University and Dara Lind of Vox.com. They spoke for a little over an hour on the 2016 presidential election. Topics included:
- What explains Donald Trump winning the Republican nomination?
- What are common misperceptions about the election and what are more accurate ways to think about them?
- Does this election teach us anything about the politics of gender and/or ethnicity that we didn’t already know?
- What is the likely direction of both the Democratic and Republican parties going forward after the election is over?
