UW-W’s Fairhaven Lecture Series returns this fall. Join us online, won’t you? Starts Mon., 9/21

Since 1983, faculty experts from UW-Whitewater have been presenting free public lectures on topics from art and history to current events and influential people. Join us online this fall, as we explore one of the most important issues in our lives today: Election 2020.

The 2020 election season will be like no other in U.S. history. An unconventional incumbent president, an international pandemic, and social and economic unrest will be on voters’ minds this fall. How will these people and events shape campaign messages? What can we learn from past elections in trying times? What will the results mean for 2021 and beyond? Join us this fall as we take a deep dive into Election 2020.

Lectures in the Fall 2020 series will be held virtually. Lectures may be held live via WebEx or pre-recorded and videos of all lectures will be posted to this page. Check individual title for information. Videos of lectures can be accessed for free any time after they are posted below.
