12:00pm to 1:00pm

Location: 

Zoom (RSVP Required)

In just over three weeks, millions will head to the polls and elect the president of the United States via an arcane institution that permits the loser of the popular vote to win, and narrows campaigning to just a handful of swing states. In this discussion, Prof. Alex Keyssar will be joined by Prof. Edward Foley and Tova Wang to discuss his new book, why the founders settled on such an institution, it’s persistence over the hundreds of years since, and current efforts to preserve, circumvent, or abolish it.

Panelists include:

On Account of Sex (1920)

4:00pm

Location: 

Zoom (RSVP Required)

After the Ab Urbe Condita, imperial Latin writers turned to abbreviated formats (i.e. epitomes) to write histories that attempted to record the full Roman timeline. Using Florus’ Epitome as a case study, the paper...
