America in the Age of Trump


Date & Time: 
Feb 20 2017 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

Lecture: The Age of Trump

On February 20 from 10:00 A.M. to noon, Michael Krasner will present a lecture and discussion on the new administration, to be titled “America in the Age of Trump: How did we get here? Where are we going? What can we do?”
The lecture is open to the public and sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, Brattleboro Chapter. All are welcome.
Michael Krasner has been on the political science faculty at Queens College, City University of New York, since 1970, teaching courses on politics and the media, and on presidential, congressional, gubernatorial, and mayoral elections, among other topics.
The talk will analyze how Donald Trump became president, what he and his allies have done so far, the resistance to their efforts, and the possibilities of creating an enduring opposition.
The causes of President Trump’s success include the decline of economic security and labor unions, white (male) rural backlash, and the rise of reality TV.
The intervention of Russia in the last election and the mysterious motivations of FBI Director James Comey will also be considered. Michael will compare Trump’s style and program to fascism and consider what can be done to stop him and his allies in the short term and to reconstruct a progressive politics in the long term.
The lecture will be held at the Vermont Learning Collaborative, 471 US Route 5, Dummerston. Parking and handicapped access are available, and light refreshments will be served. The admission fee is $6. For further information, please call Libby Mills (802) 387-5596.
