Dissecting chaos: An interdisciplinary look at the attack on the U.S. Capitol

Faculty from five schools at the University took part in a virtual panel discussion to unpack the policies, messages, and conditions that led to the events of Jan. 6, and to explore how the country moves forward. The discussion was moderated by Dean Erika James of the Wharton School, and was followed by a Q&A session facilitated by Law School Dean Ted Ruger.

Panelists included Mary Frances Berry of the School of Arts & Sciences, Damon Centola of the Annenberg School for Communication, Dennis Culhane, of the School of Social Policy & Practice, Penn Law’s Jean Galbraith, Penn Arts & Sciences’ Daniel Gillion, and Wharton’s Cait Lamberton.
