Want to know what people outside the Wesleyan bubble have to say about the 2008 election? Participate in Green Street Arts Center’s discussion series this Sunday!

The 2008 election has been an historic one for many reasons. There was both a female and African American candidate for a major political party for the first time in history, there is an opportunity to elect the oldest president ever, and the role of the internet and blogs plays a key role in the kinds of information the electorate has access to. Assistant Professor of Government Melanye Price leads an informal lecture about the role of race, gender, age and media on the current election. Come with questions and opinions and we will try and sort them out together.
