UWC Toronto – ZOOM Speakers Series with Amanda Bittner
May 16, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Professor Amanda Bittner is a political psychologist at Memorial University of Newfoundland, whose focus of research is on elections, voting and public opinion. The Royal Society of Canada, which recently made Amanda a member , describes her as Canada’s leading expert on how voters perceive and evaluate party leaders and the impact those opinions have on elections. In her talk, Amanda will explore the dynamics of voters’ perceptions of political party leaders – both in the US, where voters get to mark their ballots for their preferred presidential candidate, and in parliamentary democracies like Canada, where voters do not have a direct vote for Prime Minister.
