Dear IUP community,
The events in Washington, DC on January 6 have raised many questions related to the Constitution, impeachment, and free speech. They’re not simple questions with simple answers, but two of our faculty members in the Department of Political Science
have begun tackling some of them. I encourage you to check out their Q&A series, “Constitution in Crisis.” It’s a good way to begin discussions about our country and some of the strife it faces.
Since the January 6 events in Washington, DC, there has been much talk about removing President Donald Trump from office, even though he is set to leave on January 20. Two faculty members from IUP’s Department of Political Science, David Chambers
and Gwen Torges, recently lent their expertise to the discussion.
In this second installment of the Constitution in Crisis series, Department of Political Science faculty member Gwen Torges talks about social media and the First Amendment and how those things relate to recent events.
In the third and final installment of the Constitution in Crisis series, Department of Political Science faculty members David Chambers and Gwen Torges explain what sedition is and how it relates to the events in Washington, DC, on January 6.
