Virtual Event: Professor David Kennedy - The American Presidency in Historical Perspective (11 am PDT)

Event Details

Thu, September 17, 2020
11:00AM - 12:00PM
Registration Period:

America’s founders invented a novel institution in that fateful Philadelphia summer of 1787: the presidency. Its basic character remains fixed in Article II of the Constitution. Yet over the republic’s more than two centuries under that constitution, the scale and complexity of American society have changed dramatically.

Professor Kennedy will explore the parallel evolutionary pathways of the presidency as an institution and the character of the society in which it is embedded, with special emphasis on the role of the media in that increasingly vexed relationship.

POST-EVENT UPDATE (9/18): If you would like to receive the recording, please register and it will be emailed early next week. Thank you.
