Lecture with Bill Bishop: "Disunited States"

Date: 
25. Apr 17:00 - 19:00
Americans political parties often disagree as if they represent two different countries. That’s because, in a very real sense, they do. For the past forty years, the United States has been segregating – not by race, but by education and income, by the way we live, talk and, finally, by the way we vote. After World War II, communities in the U.S. converged. The country became more homogenous. Beginning in the 1970s, however, the country began separating, so that now people in one community are increasingly unlike those who lives only 100 kilometers down the road.
