Professors Tackle Midterm Elections in Courses

With this fall’s midterm elections quickly approaching, some Rhodes students are following day-to-day news coverage, particularly of Tennessee’s Senate and Governor’s races, in their political science courses. One of those courses is Campaigns and Elections, taught by Prof. Amy Jasperson. 

“We are focusing on the fundamentals of campaigns, the ‘rules and reality’ that shape them, and the factors that influence the choices of voters,” says Jasperson.
