Second annual American Democracy Week held at Doane
From Sept. 11 through 14, Doane faculty and invited guests shared insights on modern American democracy, the forces that have shaped it and threaten to unshape it. On Monday Sept. 11, Dr. Tim Hill, professor of political science, presented on “Democracy, Defined.” Dr. Andy Johnson Wysocki, assistant professor of sociology and director of the Honors Program, and Dr. Jared List, associate professor of Spanish, spoke on “The Cracks in the System” on Tuesday, Sept. 12. Doane hosted four election officials — the election commissioners for Douglas and Lancaster counties, and the county clerk and deputy county clerk for Saline County — on Wednesday, Sept. 13.
The week culminated in a panel conversation mediated by Hill with Laura Ebke, of the Platte Institute, and Heidi Uhing, of Civic Nebraska.
Following each presentation, students, faculty and staff were invited to ask questions.
