The Origins of Today’s Radical Right and the Crisis of Our Democracy

Nancy MacLean is an American historian and the William H. Chafe Professor of History and Public Policy at Duke University. Maclean’s research focuses on race, gender, labor history and social movements in 20th century U.S. history, with particular attention to the U.S. South. Her new book, Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America, has been described by Publishers Weekly as “a thoroughly researched and gripping narrative… [and] a feat of American intellectual and political history.” Booklist called it “perhaps the best explanation to date of the roots of the political divide that threatens to irrevocably alter American government.”

This event is part of Democracy under Pressure, the Wayne Morse Center 2017-18 Public Affairs Speaker Series. It is cosponsored by the UO Department of History, the Julie and Rocky Dixon Chair of U.S. Western History, the UO School of Journalism and Communication, and the James Wallace Chair of Journalism.
