When we first conceived of the Campaign Stop project in the summer of 2015, little did we know that this presidential campaign would be so unpredictable.
Frankly, when the site first went live in October 2015, our main concern was would we have enough new stories to keep it fresh each day. That, it turned out, was never a problem. Thanks to the more than 200 Duke faculty and nearly five dozen Duke students whose work was featured on the site, we posted at least three new pieces of content each weekday until we concluded the project on Nov. 11, 2016. All totaled, Campaign Stop included about 1,000 stories, media clips, blogs, op-eds, videos and podcasts, and contributed to live events ranging from lectures to a political cartoon festival.
All of this, we believe, speaks to the engagement of Duke faculty and students with the important issues of the day, and to the curiosity and engagement of you, our readers. Thank you for following along, reposting our tweets and Facebook posts and providing feedback. A more detailed report about the project can be found by clicking on the headline or the image above.
And check out our newest project -- “What’s Next for US?” -- in which our faculty explore the major issues now facing our country. We are in the beta-testing stage, but you can get an early peek at http://whatsnext.duke.edu/. Email feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
