University of Washington Professor David Domke will discuss politics in America from 3:30-5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, at the Greenwood Senior Center.
“Visions of America – Barack Obama, The Tea Party & The Soul Of The Nation” is billed as An inspirational talk and reception, as the election approaches.” The event is free, but please RSVP by calling 206-297-0875.
Americans have long viewed themselves and their nation as special, superior, even God-chosen. This view does not happen by chance; it is built on a daily basis through the messages politicians and news put forward. This lecture will consider the competing visions offered by Barack Obama and the Tea Party and how they relate to the notion of American exceptionalism. Speaker David Domke is a Professor and Chair in the Department of Communication at the University of Washington and is the author of two books. In recent years, Domke has spoken about politics and communication with academic, political, media and public audiences around the country.
