Time: Wednesday, February 22, 2017 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM PST
Location: Namaste Lounge
Food for Thought is a quarterly presentation from a renowned UCSC faculty member in an informal setting. This quarter, politics department professor Daniel Wirls asks: How should we think about our 18th century political institutions -- the President, Congress, and the Court -- in a 21st century world of social media populism, fake news, and a president who tweets? A Q&A will follow the presentation. Join us for light refreshments and an engaging presentation.
