Rick Perlstein will be speaking on “Trump and Conservative Historiography,” with a response by Bruce Lincoln.
Précis: In the April 17, 2017 issue of the NY Times magazine, Rick Perlstein published an article titled “I Thought I Understood the American Right. Trump Proved Me Wrong.” Seven months later, he will return to that article and the issues it raised, restoring material that was cut from it, rethinking issues in light of subsequent events, and reflecting on the challenge of presenting scholarly ideas in such a high-stakes journalistic context.
Seminary Coop Bookstore, 8-9:30 PM
