CANCELLED: Boshell Lecture: How To Win An Election: An Ancient Guide for Modern Politicians

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, this lecture has been cancelled.  In the event that the lecture is rescheduled, the new date and information will be listed.  

When Quintus Cicero began writing advice on running a political campaign in 64 B.C. he probably didn’t realize his words would still be so valuable today.  Just in time for election day, author and professor Philip Freeman will discuss the tactics of both ancient Roman and modern American politicians.  The lecture will be followed by a reception and book signing. Copies of the book are available for purchase in the Museum Store.
