Many people here in Canada and abroad are deeply affected by the recent American election. Using tactics unseen in mainstream politics, Donald J. Trump undertook an unconventional rise from fringe candidate in the Republican presidential primaries, to Republican candidate for president, to President-Elect of the United States.

As the world awaits the inauguration of Trump, the 45th President of the Unites States of America later this month, UWinnipeg’s Political Science Speakers’ Series presents a panel discussion on Wednesday, January 18 at 12:30 in 1L11 to help understand this turn of events. Admission is free and all are welcome.

Three UWinnipeg faculty members from a cross section of disciplines, Dr. Matthew Flisfeder (Rhetoric, Writing, and Communications); Dr. Paul Lawrie (History) and Dr. Jenny Wills (English) will offer analysis and critique on the new President elect and discussing what is Trumpism? What factors contributed to his victory in the 2016 American presidential election? And what does his brand of politics portend for the American presidency and American society moving forward? This discussion will be moderated by Dr. Allen Mills (Political Science).

UWinnipeg’s Centre for Liberal Arts and Secular Society (CLASS) is co-sponsoring the event.
