America's Post-Election Political Landscape


In this episode of History Talk, hosts Jessica Blissit and Brenna Miller interview three experts on American politics—Kimberly Hamlin, Marc Horger, and Paula Baker—in the wake of the 2016 presidential election. Together, they reflect on the nature of political campaigns, the role of race, class, and gender in American politics, and what has caused and what can be done about the growing cultural and political divide occurring across the country. Join us as we consider the ways that the campaign and Donald Trump’s victory both fit and defy historical trends in American politics, and where we go from here.
