Political Circus

March 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

102769 image - Political Circus

Elections are complicated and complex and make us both excited and stressed out. Lucky for us, political scientists have been studying pretty much every aspect of how they work for a long time. In this series, you’ll learn the biggest ideas and most important concepts that actually help us better understand the madness. You’ll learn things like:

  • Why is it hard to design a truly fair election?
  • What actually gets people to vote (and why don’t they?)
  • where do our political beliefs even come from (and, hypothetically, how could we change someone else’s beliefs)?

This show is a graduate course in the most influential and classic research on American politics – but much cheaper (financially and psychologically), and (probably) more fun.
