“And the New President of the United States Is…”

Dr. Jim Guth

By Wednesday, Nov. 9, you will know whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump won the presidential election.  But what you won’t know is what the outcome of such a negative and polarizing race might mean for America and the future of its politics.

Furman political science professor Jim Guth will examine the results of the election and attempt to put things into perspective when he speaks at the High Noon lecture series Wednesday, Nov. 9 at the Upcountry History Museum-Furman.

His talk, “And the New President of the United States Is…,” begins at noon.  It is free and open to the public.

In addition to discussing the outcome of the presidential contest, Guth will look at the House and Senate races and talk about how the Democrats and Republicans fared overall in the election.

A member of the Furman faculty since 1973, Guth is among the nation’s top experts on religion and politics. He has extensive experience speaking with the national media, including interviews with The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, NBC Nightly News, CBS Evening News, All Things Considered, and the BBC.  He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin and holds a Ph.D. from Harvard University.

The Upcountry History Museum/Furman is located at 540 Buncombe Street in downtown Greenville’s Heritage Green area.
