Fall 2008: "The Role of Gender in Politics"

by Kathleen McCoy  |   

Friday, Oct. 10, noon-1:30 p.m.
Consortium Library, room 302

The presence of Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin in the national presidential election campaigns has made the question of how gender affects elections visible this electoral cycle. How does the gender of a candidate affect voter response? How does the gender of voters affect their response? Are there different standards for candidates of different genders?

Please bring your lunch and join Engaging Controversy Fellows and Political Science Professors Kimberly Pace and April Susky for an informal discussion regarding the role gender plays in elections. This event is open to faculty, staff and students at UAA and APU. Co-sponsored by the Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence and the UAA/APU Engaging Controversy project.
