If you’re interested in exploring the many influences impacting the upcoming U.S. federal election, don’t miss the Oct. 12 public lecture at Douglas College titled, Critical Realignment: Trump and the Transformation of U.S. Elections.
Instructors from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) at Douglas College will speak about presidential candidate Donald Trump’s controversial campaign from philosophical, psychological, historical and political science perspectives, and provide opportunities for questions and dialogue from the audience.
Philosophy instructor Dr. Mano Daniel will explore how emotional appeal has trumped rational deliberation in the lead-up to this election. Psychology instructor Dr. Raquel Faria Chapdelaine will employ theories of social psychology and psychoanalysis to examine the hatred and violence against the racialized and religious groups that have been the target of Trump's presidential campaign. Dr. Denis McKim will provide an historical perspective on the American election, and Interim Associate Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences, Shaun Tyakoff, will talk about what to watch for on election night.
This public lecture, hosted by HSS and Advancement and Alumni Relations, will be held at the Coquitlam campus, 1250 Pinetree Way on Wednesday, Oct. 12 from 7 to 9 p.m. in Lecture Theatre A1470.
