Fairhaven Lecture: "Polls, pols and polarization: Wisconsin and the nation, 2012"

Wayne Youngquist Senior Lecturer, Sociology, Anthropology and Criminal Justice

The fall 2012 Fairhaven Lecture Series entitled “Election 2012: Understanding the People’s Choice” will examine a number of critical issues posed in this year’s election cycle. Polls reveal Americans’ record dissatisfaction with government, and the media appears consumed by a vigorous debate about the federal deficit, economic inequality, and a range of social issues. This election may either contribute to increasing political polarization or point to areas of consensus.  Presentations by UW-Whitewater faculty members explore what the campaigns this year reveal about the American public, analyzing how electoral process reflects popular sentiment and how elections shape the electorate’s choices.

All lectures are open to the public at no charge and are held on Mondays at 3 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of Fairhaven Retirement Community, 435 West Starin Road, Whitewater.  Street parking is adjacent to the building.
