Deutsches Haus at NYU and NYU's Center for European and Mediterranean Studies present a conversation with Arlie Hochschild, author of "Strangers in Their Own Land," discussing her findings on a polarized electorate.
The discussion will be based on her 2016 book, "Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right" (a finalist for the National Book Award) which is a timely piece of both empirical and theoretical sociological research into the divisions of American society. Published to much critical acclaim before the November 2016 elections, it has implications for an increasingly polarized electorates not only in the U.S.
Arlie Hochschild is Professor Emerita at the Sociology Department of the University of California, Berkeley. Her many publications include work on the shifting boundaries between market forces and personal life as well as writings on emotional labor — as she calls it, an "applied sociology of emotion." Arlie Hochschild has been awarded five honorary doctorates, three teaching awards and is the recipient of the Life Time Achievement Award, Section on the Family from the American Sociological Association.
The event will be moderated by Dr. Christian Martin, the current Max Weber Chair in German and European Studies at New York University.
