The Rise of Donald Trump in Historical Perspective

Special Events Room (room 6137), McKeldin Library
Monday, December 5, 2016 - 3:30 PM
The Miller Center for Historical Studies and the Potomac Center for the Study of Modernity present a roundtable discussion on "The Rise of Donald Trump in Historical Perspective" from 3:30-5:30pm.
 
One of the failures of the news media over the last several months was inadequate consultation with scholars about the historical precedents, parallels, and contexts informing the popular phenomenon of Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy. Now that Trump has secured the presidency, this roundtable will put University of Maryland scholars in conversation to contextualize Trumpism within history. Topics may include the histories of democracy, of race, of gender, of populism, of immigration, of mass communication, of class, etc. 
 
After the initial round of short statements from the panelists, the event will be devoted to discussion. Undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and staff are all warmly welcome to attend.
 
Panelists: 
Christopher Bonner, Assistant Professor, History 
Jeffrey C. Herf, Distinguished University Professor, History 
Robyn Muncy, Professor, History; Interim Chair, Women’s Studies
Sangeeta Ray, Professor, English 
Ana Patricia Rodriguez, Associate Professor, Spanish and Portuguese
 
Moderated by Joshua Shannon, Art History and the Potomac Center for the Study of Modernity
