Join us for a pre-election lecture with Professor Joshua Tucker, Professor of Politics at NYU and a UNIS parent. In this timely discussion, professor Tucker will explore the intricacies of the U.S. electoral system and foreign electoral intervention.
Professor Tucker specializes in voting, partisanship, public opinion, and protest, as well as the relationship of social media usage to all of these forms of behavior, with a focus on Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. He is the Director of NYU’s Jordan Center for Advanced Study of Russia, a co-director of the NYU Social Media and Political Participation (SMaPP) lab, and a co-author and co-editor of the award winning politics and policy blog The Monkey Cage at The Washington Post. Professor Tucker has also written for The New Republic, The Wall Street Journal, Al Jazeera English, Time, and The International Herald Tribune and has appeared on CNN and Voice of America.
