LAWRENCE- The Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas has announced that the biennial Post-Election Conference will debut as an eleven-part video series on the institute’s YouTube Channel.
“Our Post-Election Conference is one of the most anticipated events we have at the institute,” said Director Bill Lacy. “However, COVID-19 made it impossible to hold the conference the way we have in the past. Given the historic nature of this year’s election, we felt canceling the conference was not an option. So, we have gathered eleven world-class guests for a video series that delves deeply into one of the most unique national elections in our country’s history.”
In this new format, each guest was interviewed individually by Lacy, allowing for in-depth analysis and insight. All eleven videos are currently available for viewing. The series can be binge-watched or doled out over time.
The Dole Institute hosts a comprehensive biennial Post-Election Conference following each national election. It’s a fascinating two-day discussion on how and why elections are won and lost. A goal of Bill Lacy’s since he joined the Dole Institute in 2004, the Post-Election Conference first commenced in December 2006 and includes state and national strategists, pollsters, journalists, and campaign officials.
The Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics is dedicated to promoting political and civic participation as well as civil discourse in a bipartisan, philosophically balanced manner. It is located on K.U.’s West Campus and houses the Dole Archive and Special Collections. Through its robust public programming, congressional archive, and museum, the Dole Institute strives to celebrate public service and the legacies of U.S. Senators Bob Dole and Elizabeth Dole.
