With Timothy Lacy, Osher National Resource Center (NRC) at Northwestern University
All through US history, especially since 2016, critics have accused certain segments of the American public with ignorance, stupidity, thoughtlessness, and anti-intellectualism. One of the nation's prominent historians, Richard Hofstadter, first charted these topics in his 1963 book, Anti-Intellectualism in American Life. That study earned the 1964 Pulitzer Prize, and historians have written in its shadow ever since. This seminar consists of a close reading of that book, as well as its reception and legacy.
