Race, Politics and the 2016 Election
When: Tues., Feb 28th, 12-1:15
Where: UNH Manchester, Room 201 
Professor Lawrence D. Bobo 

The 2016 election season laid bare the deep divisions that plague American society. What role did race play in the 2016 presidential election? Was it a significant departure from previous presidential elections or did racial politics in 2016 generally follow historical trends in American politics? 

Professor Bobo is the W. E. B. Du Bois Professor of the Social Sciences at Harvard University. His research focuses on the intersection of social inequality, politics, and race. He is co-author of the award winning book Racial Attitudes in America: Trends and Interpretations, and has written widely on issues of prejudice in American politics. Professor Bobo is an elected member of the National Academy of Science as well as a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is a Guggenheim Fellow, an Alphonse M. Fletcher Sr. Fellow, a Fellow of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, and a Russell Sage Foundation Visiting Scholar.
