Wayne Morse Center 2017-18 Public Affairs Speaker Series
‘Join us in a conversation with Nancy MacLean, author of “Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America.” Her book has been described by Publishers Weekly as “a thoroughly researched and gripping narrative… [and] a feat of American intellectual and political history.” Booklist called it “perhaps the best explanation to date of the roots of the political divide that threatens to irrevocably alter American government.”
‘MacLean is an American historian and the William H. Chafe Professor of History and Public Policy at Duke University. MacLean’s research focuses on race, gender, labor history and social movements in 20th century U.S. history, with particular attention to the U.S. South.
‘This event is part of Democracy under Pressure, the Wayne Morse Center 2017-18 Public Affairs Speaker Series. It is cosponsored by the UO Department of History, the Julie and Rocky Dixon Chair of U.S. Western History, and the UO School of Journalism and Communication.’
