Much of how we discuss politics, especially this election cycle, is virtually indistinguishable from how we discuss theatre, namely – narrative, costumes, design elements and the quality of the candidate’s performances. This debate panel and viewing aims to showcase the connectivity of policy and the dramatic arts on the political stage. This cross-disciplinary convergence is uniquely suited to USC.
Panel to include:
Richard Green, Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Policy Analysis and Real Estate at USC Sol Price School of Public Policy (moderator)
Christina Haatainen-Jones, costume designer, and Head of Design and Associate Professor at the USC School of Dramatic Arts
Oliver Mayer, playwright, and Associate Dean of Strategic Initiatives and Associate Professor of the USC School of Dramatic Arts
Pamela McCann, Assistant Professor at the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy, and expert in national political maneuvering and policy
William G. Resh, Assistant Professor at the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy, and expert in the U.S. Presidency
