Event Description:

The 2017 Gilbert Lecture will be given by Marc J. Hetherington, Professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University. "Will Republicans and Democrats Always Hate Each Other? Political division – whether strong or weak, angry or meek – is best understood as the intersection of decisions that party leaders make and the psychology of ordinary Americans. 

Today’s political division is both strong and angry.  Because party leaders have made racial and cultural issues salient and they have taken clear, opposing positions on them, ordinary people are now divided into parties based on fundamental worldviews rather than on an abstract philosophy of governance, creating the most negative feelings we have seen in well over 100 years.

Professor Hetherington studies the American electorate, with a focus on th polaritzation of public opinion. He is the author of three books, the most recent of which, "Why Washington Won't Work" won the Alexander George Award form the International Society of Political Psychology.
