This fall’s Myra Kraft Open Classroom will explore the nuanced relationship between media and the presidential primaries. The School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, in partnership with the schools of journalism and law, will present a series of weekly panels comprised of politicians, reporters, and Northeaster faculty experts, who will address crucial issues such as immigration, identity politics, technology, economic inequality, relations with China, and the use of political satire. These weekly events are open to all members of our campus and the community. For those that cannot join us in person, each week’s panel will be live-streamed via Facebook Live. Northeastern students can receive credit for the course, which includes a seminar class before each session along with a campaign field trip to New Hampshire to see the campaign first hand (Undergraduate: PPUA 4225 and PPUA 4226/GraduatePPUA 7725 and 7726).
