MISSOULA – Is German Chancellor Angela Merkel set to lead her party to a fourth federal election win, or will German voters surprise as voters have in recent elections in the U.S. and UK?

The event will take place from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 20, in Davidson Honors College Room 119. It is free and open to the public.

Panelists include Larry Abramson, dean of UM’s School of Journalism; Klaus Uhlenbruck, associate dean of UM’s School of Business and Administration; Eva-Maria Maggi, visiting assistant professor of political science; Marton Marko, associate professor of German; and Autumn Fraser, UM journalism student.
