The community is invited to participate in a live, virtual seminar with political scientists Amy E. Black, of Wheaton College, and Quentin Kidd, of Christopher Newport University on Monday, Feb. 8, at 5:30 p.m.

The session, titled “Who Voted, Who Didn’t, and Why Does it Matter,” is the second of a series of events to be hosted by Lander’s College of Behavioral and Social Sciences this semester, as part of the South Carolina Humanities Electoral Initiative.

Black is the author of “Honoring God in Red or Blue,” and “Beyond Left and Right.” Kidd has provided expert testimony to courts examining states’ re-districting plans and is the co-author of “The Rational Southerner: Black Mobilization, Republican Growth, and the Partisan Transformation of the American South.” Topics for the seminar will include voting rights, voter access and voter suppression, as well as re-districting in the past and going forward with the 2020 Census. Ashley Woodiwiss, professor of political science at Lander, will serve as moderator.

Lander is one of four South Carolina universities presenting virtual programs in the Electoral Initiative, a series that brings together scholars from Lander University, Clemson University, Francis Marion University and the University of South Carolina, as well as political scientists from around the country.
