Parker, the author of "The Power of Money in Congressional Campaigns, 1880-2006," published recently by the University of Oklahoma Press, will talk about "From Walking the Wards to the YouTube Debates: The Evolution of Campaigning."
Parker believes that new technologies, such as cell phone texting, e-mailing, blogging and Web pages, have personalized politics. He likens the current presidential campaign techniques to those used in campaigns in the late 19th century.
Parker's latest book will be available for purchase and he will sign copies.
