    DA Münster/Osnabrück Book Club

    For this installment of our quarterly (Tri-annual?) Book Club, we will be tackling Kent Russell's "In the Land of Good Living: A Journey to the Heart of Florida." And why not? Florida is a state that we have been told for decades is about turn blue because of demographics. And yet, it remains a bastion of red. The book has been described as "a wickedly smart, funny, and irresistibly off-kilter account of an improbable thousand-mile journey on foot into the heart of modern Florida, the state that Russell calls America Concentrate." 

    RSVP for the Zoom link.

    Zoom Meeting in Basel, Switzerland

    Politics in a Post-Truth World

    Democrats Abroad Switzerland is very excited to welcome back Alexandra Cirone, PhD, to speak to us about the state of US politics in a post-truth world!

    What are we to do in a political environment where objective facts are ignored in favor of appeals to emotional or personal beliefs? Where fear trumps fact? Who can we trust in a world where partisanship has become so strong that facts are sacrificed to political expediency and the media has sacrificed truth in favor of balance?

    If these questions trouble you, then please join us via Zoom on Thursday, January 28th at 7 PM.

    All are welcome to attend, but DA Switzerland would gladly accept donations from American citizens in attendance in support of this event and our voter outreach and activism efforts.

    About the speaker: Dr. Cirone received her BA in political science from the University of Chicago, MA and M.Phil in political science from Columbia University, and successfully defended her PhD in political science at Columbia University in June 2017. Her focus was Comparative Politics and Quantitative Methods. Prior to pursuing her PhD, she served as Research Manager at Harvard Kennedy School's Evidence for Policy Design. She served as a pre- and post-doc Research Fellow at the London School of Economics in their Political Economy Group. Dr. Cirone is currently an assistant professor and Himan Brown Faculty Fellow in the Government department at Cornell University and a Faculty Fellow at the new Institute of Politics and Global Affairs in NYC. You can read more about her on her website.
