Trump and Beyond:
Party Politics in the 2020s
Cambridge Dems Meeting
Wed. Jan. 13, 2021 at 7:00pm
We have all been shocked this week by the seditious insurrection mounted by Donald Trump in the final days of his presidency. His coup attempts continue to fail, however; Congress did in fact certify the victory of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and we know that Joe and Kamala will take the oaths of office to become President and Vice-President on Wednesday January 20th. The events of last week prompt us only to make one small change to the logo of the presidential transition…
What is happening to the Republican Party, now in thrall to this Trumpist movement? And how will our own Democratic Party change, not just in response to the Republicans but more deeply as a result of our own powerful movements for racial and economic justice and to combat climate change?
We are extremely fortunate that our speaker this Wednesday January 13th will be Daniel Schlozman, our friend, former chair, and Associate Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University — because Danny literally wrote the book on the relationship between movements like these and political parties!
It's safe to say that no one is better qualified than Danny to help us understand what on earth is going on and what lies ahead for both parties. If you want to get an idea of what Danny's been thinking about recently, here's an article in the Washington Post, and here's an interview with Perry Bacon of FiveThirtyEight.
In accordance with our new normal, the meeting will be a Zoom videoconference that you can attend with your computer, tablet, smartphone, or even by calling in on your landline telephone if you're feeling old-school.
