US Politics in Red and Blue
How polarization is shaping our political landscape
Join the DAGR Kafeneion on Monday, 29th November at 7:00 p.m. with
Alexander Theodoridis, Associate Professor at University of Massachusetts Amherst,
whose work looks at the ways in which citizens interact with the political world
in an era of hyper-polarization.
An expert in his field, Professor Theodoridis’ work has appeared in the Journal of Politics, Political Analysis, Political Behavior, the Journal of Experimental Political Science, Political Psychology, Election Law Journal, Environmental Politics, The Forum, and PS. He has been recognized with numerous grants, the John Sullivan Award, the Elections Public Opinion and Voting Behavior Best Paper Award, and the Society for Political Methodology's Warren Miller Prize. He has also been featured by the New York Times, Washington Post, Scientific American, Time, CNN, The Hindu, The Economist and many other media outlets.
Join us to discuss the bipartisan danger of dehumanizing language;
Whether it is true that modern American partisan identity is predominantly negative;
Is our body politic doomed to be consumed by fear and loathing?
Don’t miss it!
