This conference will bring together nationally-recognized scholars, activists, academics, and students to discuss, debate, and analyze the wider implications of the Obama administration’s foreign and domestic policy agendas after over three years in office.
Over the course of three days it will probe the meaning of the historic 2008 presidential election for the very heart of our democracy, paying close attention to issues of race and gender, education, healthcare, active citizenship, and international affairs.
Keynote speakers, panelists, and participants will engage in discussions such as “Obama Cares?: Health Care Law, Democracy, and America Medicine,” “Civic Engagement and the Media in the Age of Obama,” “Active Citizenship and Democracy: From The Tea Party to Occupy Wall Street,” and more.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is recommended.
