Annual Faculty Speaker Event

UPDATETopic Announced! 

Referendum or Choice? The 2012 Election and the Shape of Things to Come. Political science models that rely on economic indicators predict that the incumbent in a recession will lose… but lots of us wonder if that’s all there is to it.

The Smith College Club of Philadelphia is proud to announce that Marc Lendler, Professor of American Government, will be coming to Philadelphia on October 9th to speak to our group about the upcoming presidential election.  For those who did not have the pleasure of taking a class with him, Professor Lendler is an engaging lecturer who is sure to bring a unique perspective to current electoral issues. We are thrilled to be holding this event at The Acorn Club, an elegant women’s club in Center City established in 1886. Join us for a delicious meal, followed by Professor Lender’s talk, and of course, time for Q&A and mingling afterwards. RSVP with pre-payment required.
