Lecture Series on Understanding a Divided Nation

Four prominent University of Delaware artists and authors addressed students and the community last fall for a College of Arts and Sciences lecture series entitled "Understanding a Divided Nation." Intended to complement the National Agenda 2017 theme of "As We Stand, Divided," the series was part of a one-credit Topics in Political Communication class that examined gender, geographic, religious, partisan, and cultural divisions in the United States. Taught by UD Center for Political Communication Director Nancy Karibjanian, the pass/fail course required students to attend both the National Agenda 2017 "As We Stand, Divided" and the in-class lecture series.
