Lunch and Learn with Gil Troy: Obama at Midterm
March 23, 2011 by giltroy
With the U.S. midterm elections over, President Barack Obama faces a complex array of challenges, choices and expectations. Join us for a thought-provoking lecture with McGill History Professor Gil Troy, who will offer a non-partisan analysis of, and questions about, (though no predictions for) President Obama’s promises, performance and prospects from a historical perspective. A native of Queens, New York, Prof. Troy is also the visiting scholar at the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington, D.C. and the author of several books, including “Morning in America: How Ronald Reagan Invented the 1980s” and “Hillary Rodham Clinton: Polarizing First Lady.” He comments frequently about the American presidency on television and radio, and has published articles in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe and USA Weekend. Seating for this event is limited so please register online as soon as possible to reserve your spot (one ticket per person). If you can’t attend, don’t worry, the event will also be streamed live on the Campus Community Committee’s website. This event is part of a Lunch and Learn series presented by the Campus Community Committee, which is working to bring the McGill community together through activities and helping Campaign McGill achieve its ambitious $750-million fundraising goal.
