Please join the Department of Economics in welcoming back Dr. Mileah Kromer for a discussion about "politeracy," which is an overview of the mechanics of public opinion polling. Dr. Kromer's talk will be on Thursday, September 27 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. in HSS 225.

Dr. Kromer's talk will also address the following questions:

  • What should consumers of polls look for in determining whether a poll is a signal of a political reality or simply the noise of junk science?

  • How can we tell what millions of voters are thinking by only interviewing hundreds?

  • Who is a likely voter?

  • Despite their best efforts, why do pollsters sometimes get it wrong?

About Dr. Kromer:

Dr. Kromer graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2003, and completed her Doctorate in Political Science from Louisiana State University in 2008. She is currently the director of the Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center and an Associate Professor of Political Science at Goucher College. Dr. Kromer oversees every aspect of the Goucher Poll, a survey of Maryland residents and voters on important issues facing the state. In addition to this important research, Dr. Kromer also teaches courses on American state politics and research methods.

Mike MuseFashion, music, entertainment, advertising, sports, news, social media, technology, food. Pop culture matters to you. But how does pop culture impact politics, and vice versa? Join STATIC as we present The Intersection of Pop Culture & Politics: An Evening with Mike Muse, live in the HUB Ohio Room, on Thursday, September 27th. This is a free event. No tickets are required for entry. However, seating is limited to the first 400 people, so be sure to arrive early enough to claim a seat! Doors for the event will open at 7:00 p.m. and the show will begin shortly thereafter. Mike will stay for a meet-and-greet with the audience after the event concludes. Straight from SiriusXM and TEDx Talks, Mike Muse, a former industrial engineer and co-founder of Muse Recordings record label, explores the intersection of pop culture and politics, attempting to dissect where we are as a nation, how we got here, and where we can possibly go. Most profoundly, he engages with college students to more meaningfully translate politics through lenses that you understand and care about: namely, pop culture. Muse believes that our current generation of college students are poised to change the nation through democracy. Click here to check out Muse’s website. Members of the #IUPVotes initiative will also be on site to help interested students register for the upcoming midterm elections in November!
