3rd floor Community Meeting Room.
A talk and open discussion with Professor Emeritus Roddey Reid.
Reid’s book explores how a climate of fear and intimidation has come to dominate national life in the United States in recent years, poisoning our politics and even reaching into our personal relationships. At the core of this history is a larger U.S. public culture of intimidation and bullying in the workplace, media, and political arena that has been building for 30 years. Reid will offer insights into the strategies and dynamics of contemporary political intimidation and public bullying: how they work, the dangers they present, the snares and traps that envelop their targets, and the lessons to be learned.
Roddey Reid is Professor Emeritus, University of California, San Diego, where he taught classes on the modern cultures and societies of the U.S., France, and Japan.
