Obama symposium to take place after DNC
The Denver University Sturm College of Law will be holding an all-day conference examining Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s campaign strategies and what difference they have had on modern politicking.
Academics will be gathering at the college on Aug. 29, a day after the Democratic National Convention officially ends, to attend “Obama Phenomena: Facets of a Historic Campaign:”
Barack Obama and his campaign would be worthy of study if he were merely the first African American major-party presidential nominee. Yet Obama is more than a history-making candidate; he and his campaign are a cultural phenomenon on many levels. This conference brings together a diverse, inter-generational group of scholars to examine the meaning of Obama’s candidacy. The symposium will consider aspects ranging from race, gender, religion and difference in contemporary politics, to the changing nature of campaign organizing, to Obama’s potential impact on affirmative action law, election law, and U.S. foreign policy.
Those who won’t already be sick of hearing about the Democrats after the convention can register on-line now to attend the event.
