Strangers In Their Own Land: anger and mourning on the American Right

Strangers In Their Own Land

Product SKU: 9781620972250
RECENTLY ANNOUNCED: 2017 CLSC Selection
Price:
Sales price: $27.95

Description

In the 2017-2018 CLSC selection Strangers in Their Own Land, the renowned sociologist Arlie Hochschild embarks on a thought-provoking journey from her liberal hometown of Berkeley, California, deep into Louisiana bayou country — a stronghold of the conservative right. As she gets to know people who strongly oppose many of the ideas she famously champions, Hochschild nevertheless finds common ground and quickly warms to the people she meets — people whose concerns are ones that all Americans share: the desire for community, the embrace of family, and hopes for their children.  Hochschild draws on the sociology of emotion to help understand what it feels like to live in “red” America. Along the way she finds answers to one of the crucial questions of contemporary American politics: why do the people who would seem to benefit most from “liberal” government intervention abhor the very idea?


The CLSC presentation will take place Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 3:30pm in the Hall of Philosophy.
