Bulen Symposium on American Politics
Discuss "The 2016 Presidential Election: Change, Revolution or Status Quo?" at IUPUI's Bulen Symposium!
Event Details

Head to the 2016 Bulen Symposium on American Politics at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis for roster of academics, media and political party representatives to discuss “The 2016 Presidential Election: Change, Revolution or Status Quo?”

Given the success both of these campaigns had in building extremely devoted followings that shocked many longtime political observers, what happens next? Are these campaigns signs of fundamental change — or even a revolution — in the American political system? Or was it just a blip, with a return to the status quo once the dust settles on the 2016 presidential campaign?

The keynote speakers bring a wealth of academic and personal experience to tackle the questions arising from the 2016 election:

  • Erika Andiola
  • Lonna Rae Atkeson
  • Brad Lockerbie

The symposium will also feature two panel discussions focused on the media and political parties. Confirmed panel participants include:

  • Amber Stearns, news editor, NUVO
  • Tony Cook, Statehouse reporter, The Indianapolis Star
  • Jason Fechner, reporter, WRTV
  • John Zody, chair, Indiana Democratic Party
  • Jeff Cardwell, chair, Indiana Rebulican Party


Be sure to register by Nov. 14.
