Political scientists have outlined and explored a growing fundamental misunderstanding between the American right and left. Analysts reference this divide when addressing the widespread bewilderment of many Americans at Donald Trump’s election, citing difficulties from liberals in understanding what Trump voters were thinking when they cast their ballots. For clarity we turn to Arlie Russell Hochschild, one of the most influential sociologists of her generation, as she takes our stage to present her book Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right.  

Hochschild will be in conversation with Christopher Sebastian Parker as part of Town Hall Seattle’s Civics series at Seattle University on February 12. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased here
