Description

This seminar will allow University of Chicago students to interact with one former and one current governor of two major Southern States – South Carolina (Hodges) and Virginia (McAuliffe). Topics will range from the intersection of race and southern politics, specifically controversy surrounding the Confederate Flag, removal of confederate monuments, and Charlottesville, as well as the question: what does a governing Southern Democrat look like?
