With Colleen Graffy, Jonathan Rowson, Ian Leslie, Sarah Churchwell, Candace Allen
US election fever has well and truly caught hold, and we’re approaching the denouement of what the Independent called ‘the greatest political show on earth’. With both campaigns raising over $350 million in September alone, it’s been the most costly political campaign in history. But how has it gone down with voters?
With: Candace Allen, writer and Democrat campaigner; Sarah Churchwell, professor of American Literature, the University of East Anglia; Ian Leslie, author and blogger on transatlantic politics, culture and ideas; and Colleen Graffy, professor of international law at Pepperdine University and former US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy.
Chair: Dr Jonathan Rowson, the RSA Social Brain project.
