A panel of experts will discuss the results of the U.S. midterm elections in a special event organized by the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics.

Panelists have expertise in the American court system, state governments, public policy and the plight of marginalized people.

Dan Tichenor, the Wayne Morse Center’s director of the Program for Democratic Engagement and Governance, said that the 2018 midterm elections will prove to be the most important in recent times.

“Our panel will explore its meaning for the Trump presidency, health care, immigration, gender, civil rights, the Mueller investigation, Oregon politics and other pressing issues,” Tichenor said.

The panel includes:

  • Alison Gash, UO political science professor and researcher.
  • Margaret Hallock, an economist and the Wayne Morse Center’s founding director.
  • Jeff Mapes, the senior political reporter at Oregon Public Broadcasting.
  • Kerry Tymchuk, executive director of the Oregon Historical Society.

The discussion, “Game Change or More of the Same? Assessing the Midterm Election,” will take place Nov. 12 at 6:30 p.m. in Room 175, Knight Law Center. Learn more at
