US Governance in the Time of Coronavirus

This course focuses on government and community actions designed to address this global pandemic in the United States. In this discussion-based class, students will apply lessons from political science and history to try and understand these unfolding events. We will consider the responses from multiple and overlapping jurisdictions including school districts, localities, states, and federal institutions, asking questions about the causes and consequences of different choices. Students will consider the impact on our lives and the nation.
