SST 520 - Comparative Elections, Parties, and Voting
This will be a course on elections, political parties, and voting behavior. Top themes addressed will be different electoral systems and party systems, why and how people vote, and regional comparisons. 2020 is an election year in the U.S., and a class about elections, voting, and political parties is highly relevant to students’ lives as they watch the presidential election. Considering the increasing divisiveness in American politics over recent years, it is important for students to understand the history and legacy of our electoral systems and how they can affect political discourse and the quality of democracy.
