General description

September 9, 10:30–16:00 [TBC], Publicum Building, Lecture Hall 2

The JMC will organize its second seminar, “The Last Two Standing: Streamlining Bipartisan Issues,” on the 2016 U.S. presidential election on Friday, September 9, 2016. The event will feature eight scholarly presentations taking change as a point of departure for the discussion of the 2016 election year. The topics in the morning session include the populist insurgency, the force of financial capital, new voter mobilization, and the politics of violence. The afternoon session discusses the changing rhetoric of insult politics in this election cycle, with a particular focus on various popular culture forms—such as political comedy and memes—and new media platforms that have become central to the 2016 race. The papers will specifically relate the discussion to the positions of the last two candidates standing, complete with relevant hot-button issues for the Democratic and Republican agendas.

University of Turku students can earn 2 ECTS credits from this event by attending the sessions and writing a 6–8-page report (instructions for the report will be available on the JMC website at http://www.utu.fi/en/units/jmc/students/courses/Pages/home.aspx closer to the event). Registration for the course via NettiOpsu will open on August 1.
