Save-the-Date: August Lecture Series

U.S. Capitol Historical Society News

The U.S. Capitol Historical Society will host its annual lunchtime lecture series on Wednesdays in August–plus Sept. 5–on Capitol Hill. This year’s iteration of the series will focus on new and ongoing research on recent congressional history.

Speakers include Laura Blessing (Georgetown University) on the effects of the earmarks ban, Kevin Kosar (R Street Institute) on the rise and fall of congressional staffing, Seth Masket (Library of Congress Kluge Center Chair) on the Democratic Party’s response to the 2016 election, Kristina Miler (University of Maryland) on the representation of the poor in Congress, and Colleen Shogun (Library of Congress) and Jacob Strauss (Congressional Research Service) on how social media is changing norms of representation in Congress.
