Participants will have an opportunity to interact with three moderated panels of historians on the second day of the Symposium.

Keynote historians, Bruce C. Levine, Ph.D. of the University of Illinois and James Oakes, Ph.D. of the City University of New York, will join moderator, Randall Miller, Ph. D. of St. Joseph’s University in a conversation about Buchanan’s and Stevens’s Political World & the Effect of Borders.
