Held a week after the Inauguration of Joseph R. Biden as the 46th President of the United States, three esteemed political scientists will discuss the governing priorities emphasised in the President’s Inaugural Address.

The panel will also weigh the impact of the severe challenges facing the Biden Administration, including a lethal pandemic claiming 4,000 lives a day, an unemployment rate comparable to the Great Recession of 2008, and the displays of sedition and white supremacy vividly on display in the last days of the Trump presidency.

This event will mark the first appearance by Professor Robert Lieberman as this year’s John G. Winant Visiting Professor of American Government. We are also pleased to welcome back Professor Lieberman’s predecessor as Winant Visiting Professor, Professor Margaret Weir.
