President Trump: Now What?

The results of the 2016 American presidential election were more than a little surprising and disorienting for many students, faculty, political analysts and the general public.

This event, which was held at Dalhousie University on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 (two days before Trump’s inauguration) featured two 75 minute panels with five speakers/experts on each panel addressing the lessons and implications of the US election for various aspects of:  American politics, gender, class and/or race in the US, immigration, journalism and the role of traditional and social media (e.g., false news; polling failures, etc.), Canada-US relations, international politics, international trade, diplomacy, or global security.
