Mark your calendars and share the invitation!  TRUMP FOR LUNCH returns this Thursday, February 23, 12:15–1:30 pm in Sage 5711.  This week's topic is “Don’t Read Trump’s Tweets: How the Media Fails in Dealing with Trump’s Magician Tricks," presented by STS graduate students Leo Bachinger and Hined Rafeh.

Barely a month old, the Trump presidency has already provoked deep concern and questions about an incredible array of legal and social issues. University communities need to analyze and interpret what is happening and what is at stake.  The Trump for Lunch meetings, hosted by Rensselaer's Department of Science and Technology Studies (STS),  aim to provide a forum for this work. Previous topics include STS Professor Mike Fortun on parallels between racism today and the eugenics movements of the 1920s. 

The event is free and open to the Rensselaer community.
