Presidential Elections and Campaigns: What Can We Learn From History?
Part 3: Reagan and the Election of 1980
Join Missouri as the Missouri Humanities Council and TeachingAmericanHistory.org present for a free three-part webinar series. Each episode will focus on a different era of presidential campaign politics, focusing on a single pivotal election as a vehicle to examine the laws, norms, and events of those times. The series, taken together, will provide attendees with a view of American presidential electoral politics as it has evolved over the centuries, how things have changed, and how in some cases, been remarkably consistent.
These live programs are free to all, and attendees will be able to ask the panelists questions via the chat function during the program. All episodes will air at 7pm Central Time and will last 60 minutes each. The registration link will enable you to sign up for all the whole series at once, and you will be sent login credentials the day before each episode.
Dr. Jeff Sikkenga, Professor Political Science at Ashland University and Executive Director of the Ashbrook Center, will lead each episode, interviewing a different scholar each week.
