About this event:

Lara Wessell, Assistant Professor of Political Science

"Presidential Authority and National Threats: Thinking Critically about Power”

The ways in which American presidents respond to crises offer important insights into their politics, their leadership styles, and their interpretations of the Constitution. In this lecture, Wessell will draw upon the powers of critical analysis inculcated through a liberal-arts education to assess presidential power as she examines the ways in which recent presidents have responded to war, natural disaster, civil unrest, and the ever-changing landscape of current events.

The lecture is a part of “A Moveable Feast,” a fall-to-spring series of monthly lectures and performances by its distinguished faculty, ferrying you into a variety of historic venues in beautiful downtown Savannah.
