The Presidential Election is one year away but the campaigning is already in full swing. The Iowa caucuses and the first primaries are planned for just after the New Year with a string of contests to follow. Liz Sidoti, national political editor for the Associated Press, will provide an insider’s view of the campaign, including how AP is covering it. What makes news and why during a campaign? How does 2012 look compared to past campaigns? Sidoti will answer these questions and more in Election 2012: Covering the Campaign.

When & Where
Six@Six Lecture Series
Six@Six is a community lectures series sponsored by Northern Kentucky University’s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement. Think of this as your chance to go to college, minus the tuition, the morning classes and the pressure of grades.
The season will start with an evaluation of the Constitution and the Emancipation Proclamation and end with a look into the dark side of the life of Machiavelli. In between, you’ll learn about the evolution of wire service photography, the effects of consuming energy cocktails, wobbly atoms, and the truth behind police drama forensic science.
Six@Six is hosted by three of our region’s finest arts and cultural institutions: The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center, Behringer-Crawford Museum and The Mercantile Library. This year for the first time a lecture will be held in Northern Kentucky University’s new state-of-the-art Digitorium in Griffin Hall. The lectures begin this fall and stretch into next spring. The six lectures each start at 6 p.m. and cost $6 (buy a season pass for $30; students are free.)
