Throughout the fall semester, the Myra Kraft Open Class­room series will explore the choices facing the Amer­ican elec­torate in the 2016 pres­i­den­tial election.

Open Class­room is a semes­ter­long sem­inar series that is free and open to the North­eastern com­mu­nity and the public. The first class of the fall semester is Wednesday night.

The goal is to foster discussion—not focus pri­marily on speeches—and really wrap our heads around what’s been hap­pening here in this elec­tion,” says Christo­pher Bosso, pro­fessor of public policy at North­eastern. Bosso is run­ning the Open Class­room series this semester with Michael Dukakis, Dis­tin­guished Pro­fessor of Polit­ical Sci­ence and the 1988 Demo­c­ratic pres­i­den­tial nominee.

The series will examine the U.S. pres­i­den­tial race from many dif­ferent angles. Read the full story at news@Northeastern for five things to watch for—and rea­sons to attend.
