Join us on Wednesday, September 29 at 4:30pm ET for a Study Group with IOP Resident Fellow Speaker Sara Gideon.
One Nation vs. Many
We often divide our states politically: red vs blue. But in fact, America's most essential and abiding divisions are not between red states and blue states, conservatives and liberals, or the faithful and the secular. Rather, our divisions stem from regional cultures with origins anchored in the differences between the rival Euro-American colonial projects and respect no state boundaries.
Speaker Gideon will be joined by Colin Woodard, New York Times bestselling historian and George Polk Award-winning journalist and author of American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America.
You must register and a limited number of seats will be allocated for in-person participation. We will notify you at noon the day of the study group via your Harvard email whether you will be joining in-person or via Zoom.
*AUDIENCE: These conversations are open to members of the Harvard community. Please RSVP with a valid Harvard email address.
*OFF-THE-RECORD: In keeping with our long tradition at the IOP to ensure honest and candid discussions of politics, all IOP study groups are off-the-record.
