Themester 2020: Democracy
This fall, the College of Arts and Sciences’ Themester explores the theme “Democracy.” Coinciding with fall 2020’s U.S. presidential election, Themester 2020 engages in a global interdisciplinary debate about the role and future of democracy with over two dozen undergraduate courses and numerous public activities and events throughout the fall semester. Themester at IU Cinema presents a thought-provoking sample of films that depict or interpret facets of democracy such as public discourse, civic engagement, and electoral politics, and the forces that counter or corrupt them. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
The screening is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and IU Cinema.
Join us for a virtual conversation on the film Election hosted in partnership with Themester 2020: Democracy.
