Fairhaven Lecture: "2012
convention speeches compared: Acclaims and attacks in an evolving genre"
Corey Davis Assistant Professor, Communication
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.
