SAL U Lecture Series
Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will grapple with the economy, health care and foreign affairs in their campaigns. But religion and economics will emerge as central themes. What impact will they have in November?
The UW Alumni Association and Seattle Arts & Lectures are proud to present Professors David Domke and Mark Smith, who will try to answer that question during a five-part lecture series, “Faith & Finance: Visions of America & the 2012 Presidential Election.”
Domke is a professor and chair in the department of communications at UW, and is collaborating with journalists and students on Election Eye 2012 (see page 26). Smith is an associate professor in the political science department at UW.
Thursdays—Sept. 13, Sept. 27, Oct. 11, Oct. 25 and Nov. 8—Kane Hall 130 • $100 for the 5-part series • $85 for UWAA members
