Importing Political Polarization? The Electoral Consequences of Rising Trade Exposure

Importing Political Polarization? The Electoral Consequences of Rising Trade Exposure

April 12, 2018
5:00 – 7:00 PM

Location: 

James Room (4th floor) Barnard College 3009 Broadway New York, NY 10027

Event Type: 

DESCRIPTION
Coming to Terms with a Polarized Society: "Importing Political Polarization? The Electoral Consequences of Rising Trade Exposure"

David Autor (MIT) will use evidence from the worlds of economics and political science to examine the impact of economic change – and in particular the rising competition of foreign imports into the American market – on political polarization. Counties that were particularly exposed to foreign trade have become more likely to vote for the Republican candidate for president. The panel will address the question of economic and political responses to these trends that may have the potential to ameliorate political polarization.

Panelists:
Thomas Edsall, Joseph Pulitzer II and Edith Pulitzer Moore Professor, Columbia University; Op-Ed Writer, New York Times

Alan Krueger, Bendheim Professor of Economics and Public Affairs, Princeton University; Former Chairman of President Barack Obama's Council of Economic Advisers

Moderated by Thomas DiPrete, Giddings Professor of Sociology.
Free and open to the public. RVSP encouraged but not required.

Just Societies Speaker Series: Retreat From Equality: The Importance of Reconstruction and the Late Nineteenth Century to Understanding Persistent Racial Inequality 3 of 3

Just Societies Speaker Series: Retreat From Equality: The Importance of Reconstruction and the Late Nineteenth Century to Understanding Persistent Racial Inequality 3 of 3

April 17, 2018
4:00pm-5:30pm

Location: 

The World Room, Columbia Journalism

Event Type: 

Dear Colleagues,

It gives me great pleasure to announce the Just Societies Speaker Series, a new initiative I am launching this semester in my role as Dean of the Division of Social Science.

As social scientists, our research provides context, insight, and a deeper understanding of societies in the United States and abroad. My vision for this series is to spotlight the work of peers, here at Columbia and from institutions around the world, who are working in a range of important areas, specifically wealth inequality, criminal justice, immigration, LGBTQ rights, and climate change. 

Each semester, my office will host a distinguished set of scholars, all of whom are experts in their respective fields. I am thrilled to inaugurate this series in three week's time with a talk from Cathy Cohen, the David and Mary Winton Green Professor of Political Science at The University of Chicago, who will be presenting on the politics of minority youth in the United States.

Included below is a link to RSVP for all three of the Spring 2018 lectures, featuring sociologistAlejandro Portes of Princeton University and our own Eric Foner. I encourage you to forward the details for the series on to your undergraduate and graduate students. All of these events are free and all are welcome to attend.

Looking forward to seeing you at these events in the coming weeks

Sincerely, 

 

 

Fredrick Harris
