Booksigning and Panel Discussion: “The Obama Effect” (3/2)

The Department of American Studies and the Dresher Center for the Humanities present Kimberly Moffitt, assistant professor of American studies at UMBC, Heather Harris of Stevenson University and Catherine Squires of the University of Minnesota, the three co-editors of “The Obama Effect,” a multidisciplinary analysis of Obama’s presidential campaign and the 2008 election.

They will place the “Obama effect” in the context of the American experience with race and the media and discuss how reaching a point in U.S. history where a biracial man could be deemed electable is only part of an ongoing struggle.

The book-signing and discussion will be held on the seventh floor of the Albin O. Kuhn Library at 4 p.m., Wednesday, March 2.
