Lee’s Department of History, Political Science and Humanities will welcome Dr. James Ceaser on Friday, Nov. 16, to give a lecture entitled, “Revisiting the Presidential Election.”

Ceaser’s talk will be a retrospective of the presidential election, particularly in light of America's philosophic commitment to liberalism.

Ceaser serves as professor of politics at the University of Virginia where he has taught since 1976. He has written several books on American politics and political thought, including “Presidential Selection,” “Liberal Democracy and Political Science,” “Reconstructing America,” and “Nature and History in American Political Development.”

Ceaser has held visiting professorships at the University of Florence, the University of Basel, Oxford University, the University of Bordeaux, and the University of Rennes.

The lecture will take place at 5:30 p.m. in the Johnson Lecture Hall in the Humanities Center.

A question and answer session will immediately follow the lecture. Refreshments will be provided.
