“The Future of Arkansas Politics” – speaker Dr. Jay Barth
This event is free and open to the public.
After a period of dramatic transformation in partisan politics and governmental institutions in Arkansas, it’s time to think about the dynamics that will shape politics and government in the Natural State in the generation ahead. In this wide-ranging talk, Barth will overview his analysis of the “new normal” and additional changes to come in Arkansas’s politics.
