“Making sense of the election”: PNW faculty to present post-election day panel discussion

“The 2020 election is being characterized by the media as a monumental moment in the history of the United States. And yet, what will we actually know about the future of our political system the day after the election?”

That’s the question posed by Purdue University Northwest, which is inviting the public to examine and make sense of what happens on Election Day through a virtual conversation in which the public can participate with experts in evaluating what we have learned and what will happen next.

A panel of PNW political science professors will provide their brief observations and answer questions during “Making Sense of the Election,” offered via Zoom from noon to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4.

To participate, visit pnw.edu/post-election-panel. The event is free.

Panelists include Richard Rupp, associate professor of political science and interim department chair of political science, economics, and world languages; moderator Meg Rincker, professor of political science, focusing her observations on the Congressional races; Jonathan Swarts, professor of political science and dean of the Honors College, focusing his comments on the Indiana races; Yu Ouyang, assistant professor of political science, applying his expertise on the presidency to discuss the top of the ballot; and Frank Colucci, associate professor of political science, providing commentary on the Supreme Court.
