A Road Less Traveled: From the Senate to the White House

Ben. Sifuentes-Jáuregui, Associate Professor and Chair, American Studies, School of Arts and Sciences

Since its launch in 1981, MTV has helped define popular culture by showing music videos by everyone from Michael Jackson to U2 to 50 Cent. How have the look, sound, and overall vibe of music videos shaped Generations X, Y, and Z? Explore questions of identity, especially race, sexuality, and class with Professor Ben. Sifuentes-Jáuregui as you screen and analyze recent music videos.

Ross K. Baker, Professor, Political Science, School of Arts and Sciences

Despite their power and prominence in Congress, U.S. senators are rarely elected president. Join Professor Ross K. Baker as he examines how the Senate was affected by the large number of its members running for president this year, and why the road from the Senate to the White House is often a bumpy one.
