The 2016 Warren G. Harding Symposium
Friday, Jule 15-Saturday, July 16
The Warren G. Harding Symposium is an academic, social, and cultural exploration of the life and times of America's 29th president. The Symposium presents in-depth analysis and research by authors, historians, researchers and experts on the Harding Era and related areas of interest. The Warren G. Harding Symposium is a collaboration between The Ohio State University at Marion, the Ohio History Connection, the National First Ladies Library, Marion Technical College, Harding Home & Memorial, and Marion Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The 2016 Warren G. Harding Symposium will present "The American Presidential Candidate: Reality vs. Illusion". Warren Harding's Front Porch Campaign in 1920 was considered the first "modern" media campaign. Some might argue it's been downhill ever since! Dr. Alan Schroeder of Northeastern University's School of Journalism, Dr. Daniel Shea of Colby College's Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement, and Mo Elleithee, who heads the Institute of Politics and Public Service at Georgetown University will each bring their insight into today's "modern" presidential campaigns. Where have we come and where are we going in the selection process for the leader of the free world? This year's Symposium promises to be as relevant as today's headlines.
