While votes continued to be counted across the country on Nov. 4, Clark faculty gathered virtually to address the potential results and ramifications of the 2020 presidential election. “What Just Happened,” moderated by Dean of the Faculty Esther Jones, included an interdisciplinary panel of faculty from across campus, including Robert Boatright (political science); Jack Delehanty (sociology); Ousmane Power-Greene (history); Mark Miller (political science); and Johanna Vollhardt (psychology).
During the discussion, the scholars examined the election, its consequences, and the issues surrounding it — racial tension, social unrest, the pandemic, unemployment, legal challenges, the role of Latinx voters, the polling industry, and social media’s role in promoting divisiveness.
