This fall, the Center for the Study of American Democracy, in conjunction with the Office of Alumni and Parent Engagement, hosted a series of six virtual panel discussions focused on the November elections.

In response to the events at the United States Capitol last Wednesday, we will continue those conversations in a virtual panel discussion on Thursday, Jan. 14 at 7 p.m. ET. 

We'll explore the implications of efforts by President Trump and many of his supporters to overturn the presidential election — including the violent storming of the capitol to prevent congress from naming the president-elect — and what these may mean for the peaceful transfer of power, the rule of law and the future of American democracy.

Panelists will include:

  • Paul Brown '86, executive director, Special Initiatives, University of Maryland School of Public Policy
  • James Ceaser '67 H'02, professor of politics, University of Virginia
  • Larry James, managing partner, Crabbe, Brown & James LLP

  • Courtney J. Kealy '89, foreign correspondent
  • Charles Stimson '86, senior legal fellow and manager, National Security Law Program, Institute for Constitutional Government.
  • David Rowe, Kenyon professor of political science and director of the Center for the Study of American Democracy (moderator)
This event is still evolving and additional panelists may be added.
