Harriet Elliott Lecture Series 2023-24

Posted on September 14, 2023


Organized by the Department of Political Science, the 2023–24 Harriet Elliott Lecture Series explores Democracy in Crisis. The past decade has seen democratic systems come under attack both in the United States and abroad. Our distinguished speakers will examine the sources and dynamics of democracy’s challenges and responses – concentrating on historical and international examples of democratic breakdown and rebirth, democracy’s fraught relation to American racial politics and political behavior, and potential avenues for revitalizing democracy for the future.
