Levy Lecture Series: Dark Money: The Money Behind Our Politics with Julie Strauss

April 12 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Free

In this webinar presentation, Join Julie Strauss, Ph.D., for an in-depth discussion of the way money flows through our political system. We will explore how campaigns raise funds, the role of so-called dark money and the influence of super PACs. We will also examine how campaign finance laws have evolved since the 1970s and how the Supreme Court has viewed them. Finally, we will discuss the ways in which money influences our politics and our government’s policies as well as the psychological experience of them.

​Julie received her Ph.D. in American Politics from Northwestern University. Her dissertation examined the unique role women members of Congress have had on public policy. Prior to entering graduate school, Julie spent two years on Capitol Hill working for elected officials. She received her undergraduate degree in social science from Wesleyan University. She currently lives in Evanston with her husband and two children.
