Lecture: 'New England’s Political Histories, Contradictions and Controversies'
October 12, 2017
The University of Massachusetts Press and the Jones Library are proud to present the ongoing series, “UMass Press Reads @ the Jones Library.”
Erin O’Brien, chair of the political science department at UMass Boston, will facilitate a conversation about the inherent complexities and contradictions in New England political life over the past two centuries—from early democratic reforms to late twentieth-century witch-hunts, and the entrenched inequalities of today.
