In response to the demand from students for information, for historical context and for analysis of then recent U.S. election and its possible consequences, the New School is mounting a 14-week series of lectures by New School faculty called “Post-Election America.” Lectures will be led by experts in the topic area and will include sessions on the U.S. constitution, immigration law and policy, populism, illiberalism, political polarization, economic inequality, nationalism, globalization, financialization, deindustrialization, the future of health and pension policy, climate change and environmental politics, race and the political economy of racial identity, gender and class politics, the urban-rural divide and the political economy of the U.S. “rust belt.” The series is open to the public.
