The New American Populocracy: How the Rise of Populist Attitudes Threatens Our Democracy

March 17, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

featuring Ashley Anderson, Assistant Professor of Political Science


***If you signed up for a HUMANITIES IN ACTION SEASON PASS, this event is included as a bonus lecture.***


Join us this semester as we bring Humanities in Action online!

This series has long been our forum for “topics in the news,” and we continue that tradition with five talks that speak to challenges we face in America today, or subjects that are difficult to discuss in a heated political environment. Each lecture will be accompanied by a question and answer session with the presenter. Please be sure to verify the dates and times for all CPH events this spring as circumstances change quickly.

All programs are held online as a Zoom webinar.

Tuition:  Each Humanities in Action lecture is $15.00 ($10.00 for GAA members).  With your registration fee, you can attend the webinar in real time or you can watch the recording at your leisure for up to 2 weeks after it is posted – or both!
