February 13 @ 8:00 am - 2:30 pm

One-Day Seminar: Federalists vs. Antifederalists, hosted by Arizona Department of Education (Phoenix, AZ)

April 3 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Federalist-Antifederalist debates raged from 1787-1788, as the Constitution was considered for ratification, and eventually adopted in by the requisite number of states in 1788. The debates themselves, and the issues and positions staked out, are far larger in scope and meaningful to the modern student of American history and politics than might seem at first glance. Learn about why the Antifederalists feared a strong central government, extensive powers of taxation by a distant Congress, and were distrustful of any…

Moments of Crisis: Watergate

April 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

The break-in at the Watergate before the 1972 presidential election was relatively small news at the time; however, keen investigative journalism and a voice from within the Nixon administration eventually led to the downfall and first resignation of an American president. Astonishing in its brazenness, the work of the Plumbers and involvement of the White House dramatically changed how Americans viewed presidential character and the relationship between the press and politicians, ushering in an era of increased partisanship and distrust.…
