Congress and Political Development

The Governing America in a Global Era (GAGE) program at the University of Virginia's Miller Center of Public Affairs announces a panel to be held at the Center on May 20, 2009, at 4:00, entitled “At the Crossroads: Congress and American Political Development.” The announcement explains:
At the Crossroads will look more closely at the role that Congress has played in American Political Development and why the institution has been less thoroughly studied than the presidency, court, and political parties. The discussion will center around the essay, "At the Crossroads: Congress and American Political Development" by Ira Katznelson and John Lapinski.
Brian Balogh (University of Virginia) will chair the panel. The other participants are Jeff Jenkins, Elizabeth Sanders (Cornell University), John Lapinski (University of Pennsylvania), Ira Katznelson (Columbia University), and Charles Stewart III (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

This event is free and open to the public, and will be webcast live and archived here.
