Students Examine Election, Next American Leader in Real Time

This semester, students at the University of Kentucky are learning about American leadership and democracy as it unfolds.

Following the Campaign Trail: Currents Fall 2012

Fall of 2012 was the perfect time to conduct a class about American electoral politics - so it was taken up as the topic for Currents, a class offered to incoming Freshmen. The course explores the 2012 election from a variety of academic perspectives - including, but not limited to, philosophy, economics, history, and, of course, political science. In this podcast, five Currents students shared their experiences with the class. 

The students interviewed are: Trevor McNary, a double major in International Studies and Economics with a minor in Arabic and Islamic Studies; Jonathan Burdick, a Chemistry major; Elisabeth Campbell, a double major in Russian and Political Science with a minor in Spanish; Kevin States, a double major in marketing & management; and Kyle Richardson, a Political Science major.

A&S Course Offers Lens into 2012 Election

The course, designed for first-year students, aims to facilitate high-level discussion in a nonpartisan manner and to explore how elections really work. The focus will span across historical data from past elections, such as voter demographics, important cultural issues such as religion, women's rights and civil rights, to the key challenges that the nation faces for the 2012 election.

America Through the Lens of the 2012 Election: Mark Kornbluh & Kathi Kern

Arts & Sciences Dean Mark Kornbluh and history professor Kathi Kern are teaching a class 'inside out' - by taking an issue (in this case, the 2012 presidential election) and building a course around it. The class, "Currents: America Through the Lens of the 2012 Election," is an interdisciplinary look into how American democracy functions. It is slated to be a non-partisan examination of how elections work, their function in media and society, and how elections have changed over time.
