Kathleen Hall Jamieson on the Resilience of American Democracy
Dialogue Across Difference
Donald Trump tapped a reservoir of radical hate by scapegoating immigrants and Black Americans victimized by police violence, lying about the presidential election results, and mobilizing a mob to assault Congress. Even as Trump swung away, a powerful story about American democracy emerged. The 2020 election demonstrated the durability of law, the courage of the free press, and the civic determination of Americans who organized and voted in record numbers. One of America's iconic observers of American public life - Kathleen Hall Jamieson - joins us to talk about the state of American democracy and its future.

Could Abraham Lincoln's 1864 bid for re-election have survived contemporary political campaigning? Professor Kathleen Hall Jamieson, a noted scholar at the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg School for Communication, considers that question in a public lecture at Davidson College. The talk is entitled "How Today's Consulting Tactics Could Have Unseated Lincoln." Jamieson's talk serves as the college's annual McGaw Lecture, and is sponsored by the college's 2012 Coordinating Committee for the Democratic National Convention. Her talk at Davidson is co-sponsored by the college's Public Lectures Committee, the Communication Studies program, the Departments of Sociology and English, the Vann Center for Ethics, and the Center for Civic Engagement at Davidson.
