Conversations Live: Making Sense of the 2016 Election

Dramatic, surreal, unprecedented…those are just a few of the words that describe the 2016 election season. With election day less than two weeks away, all eyes are on Pennsylvania. Tonight, our panel of political analysts will dissect the evolving issues—and what they might mean for the future of our democracy.

NICHOLA GUTGOLD is a communication arts and sciences professor at Penn State. She has also written several books that address the role gender plays in American politics.

MICHAEL BERKMAN is a political science professor in Penn State’s College of Liberal Arts. In July he was named the director of Penn State’s McCourtney Institute for Democracy, which was founded in 2012 as an interdisciplinary center for research, teaching, and outreach on issues of democracy.

And joining by telephone is TERRY MADONNA, director of the Center for Politics and Public Affairs at Franklin & Marshall College, where he’s also a professor of Public Affairs and director of the Franklin and Marshall College Poll.
