End of the Fall 2016 Semester

As we finish our semester, we took the last class ‘series’. The semester went well. Even the incidental 60 student class did fine. I’m pleased with the results.

The 2016 US Presidential Elections made for challenging times in our field. Traditional observations about the continuity of institutions, the strengths and legitimacy of the electoral process, the durability of democracy, and many more concepts and ideas came under new scrutiny. It took me a while to adjust!
