Claremont Discourse Lecture: "Making Sense of Public Opinion about Immigration Reform and Obamacare"

Prof. Claudia Strauss, Anthropology, Pitzer |
Wed., October 9th, 4:15PM, Honnold/Mudd Library Founders Room

We cannot make sense of the way the American public think about issues like immigration reform or the government's role in health care if we analyze opinions in terms of standard liberal/conservative ideologies. This talk draws on anthropological interviews to show that people form opinions from a patchwork of conventional discourses that cross ideological lines.
