      EVENT DETAILS
      How to Beat an American Demagogue: Donald Trump and the Future of Democracy

      Political demagogues are unfortunately not new in American politics, but Donald Trump is the first to become U.S. President. With Trump in this position and joined by an aligned national Republican Party, the harm to minoritized populations, rational debate, ethical government, the nation, and the world is devastating. The only small-d democratic way forward is to engage in clear-eyed, smart, determined, historically informed, and collective action. This lecture series traces the people and practices that paved the way for Trump, Trump's specific tactics, and the necessary steps ahead. There is real pain and harm, and it won't be easy. But we're going to do it. Speaker: David Domke, University of Washington Professor Event is free for all students displaying student ID.
