April 25, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Virtual Event Virtual Event
NSU Lifelong Learning Institute Community, Intergenerational Lecture Series - Civics and Democracy, Part I - Voting, with Charles Zelden, Ph.D.

Nova Southeastern’s NSU Lifelong Learning Institute Civics & Democracy Series is free and open to the community. Lecture 7 is the final lecture of this 8-parts series and will focus on Ideological Polarization. The lecture will explore two periods of high political and ideological polarization in American history: the Antebellum period prior to the Civil War and the politics of the 21st century. The emphasis will be on what happens to the nation when ideological differences become so intense that the normal patterns and norms of democracy fall apart.

This program is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Nova Southeastern University Lifelong Learning Institute.
