Coming To Terms With A Polarized Society

"Strangers in Their Own Land: Where Do We Go From Here?"

Join us on November 1 at 5pm for the second lecture in the “Coming to Terms with a Polarized Society” lecture series.  ARLIE HOCHSCHILD will discuss her acclaimed book, “Strangers in their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right,” which provides a clarifying and empathic view of the political convictions of conservative Louisiana voters. She will also describe what she learned from her recent revisit to Louisiana to hear their responses to Trump. FRED HARRIS and NICK LEHMANN, distinguished academics who also have personal experience of living in the American South, will provide commentary and perspective.

Free and open to the public. RVSP encouraged but not required.
