CLE Credits: 10.0 General

Barack Obama and his campaign would be worthy of study if he were merely the first African American major-party presidential nominee. Yet Obama is more than a history-making candidate; he and his campaign are a cultural phenomenon on many levels. This conference brings together a diverse, inter-generational group of scholars to examine the meaning of Obama’s candidacy. The symposium will consider aspects ranging from race, gender, religion and difference in contemporary politics, to the changing nature of campaign organizing, to Obama’s potential impact on affirmative action law, election law, and U.S. foreign policy.
Please join us at this exciting conference during this truly historic time.
The conference has been accredited for 10 general CLE credits.
