Lunchtime Seminar: Legacies of Losing with Professor Tulis

Thu, February 7, 2019 | BAT 5.108

12:00 PM

Professor Tulis will be on hand for a lunchtime seminar based on his new book, Legacies of Losing. The topic of the book is as follows:

American politics is typically a story about winners. The fading away of defeated politicians and political movements is a feature of American politics that ensures political stability and a peaceful transition of power. But American history has also been built on defeated candidates, failed presidents, and social movements that at pivotal moments did not dissipate as expected but instead persisted and eventually achieved success for the loser’s ideas and preferred policies.

We'll be serving lunch beginning at noon, and the discussion will start at 12:30. RSVPs are now open, so if you plan to attend, please RSVP to the CTI email address.
