Democracy 101 @ CSU

by Mandi Goodsett on 2021-02-22T10:00:00-05:00 | Comments

Many opportunities for civic engagement emerged last semester: the centennial of the adoption of Democracy 101the 20th amendment, which gave women the right to vote; the 2020 census; and the important 2020 presidential election. The library decided to offer a suite of events and resources to support faculty and students in their engagement with these milestones by creating a research guide with resources and teaching modules for faculty and students to explore.  We also facilitated three events featuring the following speakers: Dr. Malia McAndrew, a history professor from John Carroll University, to speak about women's suffrage; Mandi Goodsett, Performing Arts & Humanities Librarian at the Michael Schwartz Library, to speak about misinformation and fact checking techniques; and Dr. Ed Horowitz, a communication professor at CSU, to speak about the (then) upcoming election and how the pandemic had altered the messaging used by both political parties.  Recordings of all three presentations can be found in the Democracy 101 research guide.  Even though the milestone year has passed, the guide contains many useful links and tools, so please feel free to check them out!
