The Aydelotte Foundation’s popular Second Tuesday Cafe series returns — this time with a focus on the 2016 presidential election. Co-convened by Carol Nackenoff (Professor, Political Science) and Sa’ed Atshan (Visiting Assistant Professor, Peace & Conflict Studies), 2016-17 cafes will provide interdisciplinary perspectives on critical issues underlying the campaign, and the likely consequences of the election on domestic and foreign affairs.\r\nTopics may include prospects for Supreme Court appointments and decisions; the debate over climate change and movements for climate justice; economic insecurity, growing inequality, political frustration and the Trump phenomenon; American conservatism today; issues of race, gender and LGBT rights; the meaning of the election in and for the Middle East; and the relationship between religion and politics.\r\nEvents are geared for individuals with no particular formal background. The only requirement is curiosity. Talks will last about 35 minutes, followed by about 15 minutes of Q&A. December 13 will feature Eric Behrens (ITS), Mary Hasbrouck (Facilities) and Susan Smythe (Facilities) on \"What Election Judges See: Ways You Can Fail to Get Your Vote Counted in Pennsylvania.\" \u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"contact\"\u003ePamela Shropshire,, 610-690-3560\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"location\"\u003eKohlberg : Kohlberg, Scheuer Room\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"image\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"\" border=\"0\" alt=\"Eric Behrens\" /\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"thumbnail\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"\" border=\"0\" alt=\"Eric Behrens\" /\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"category\"\u003eAydelotte Foundation, Home Page Highlight, Lecture/Talk/ Reading/ Panel\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"extrainfo\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"sponsor\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"opento\"\u003eSwarthmore Faculty & Staff Only\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"startdate\"\u003e12/13/2016\u003c/div\u003e\u003c/div\u003e");
