Xenophobia and its Effects on the 2016 Presidential Election
Noon – 12:50 p.m., Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium
Immigration, refugees and terrorism are vying with the economy as the biggest issues of the current presidential election. In the view of some, candidates have staked out positions that are racist and anti-American. Yet, these platforms fit into a long tradition of isolationism in the U.S. and have made several candidates quite popular. Rosemary Armao, journalism professor at SUNY Albany and commentator on WAMC Public Radio, addresses these issues and more. Presented by Voices: A Library Lecture Series.
