Book Talk: “The Fall of Wisconsin” @ Bird in Hand
Sep 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Book Talk: "The Fall of Wisconsin" @ Bird in Hand | Baltimore | Maryland | United States

Originally from Wisconsin, Dan Kaufman has covered the state’s dramatic political transformation for years. His new book, “The Fall of Wisconsin: The Conservative Conquest of a Progressive Bastion and the Future of American Politics” (W. W. Norton, 2018), shows how Wisconsin politics has been radically transformed over the past two decades. For more than a century Wisconsin had been a bastion of progressivism, a cradle of the labor and environmental movements, and home of the Wisconsin Idea, which promoted expertise for the public good. Then in 2010, Republicans, led by Governor Scott Walker, took control of state government, rolling back laws protecting labor rights, the environment, voting rights, and public education. And in 2016, Wisconsin went for Trump. Yet even as the state became a national laboratory for conservatives bent on remaking the country, many of its citizens fought back, and continue to do so. These include Randy Bryce, an ironworker hailed as “the new star of the Democratic party” whose long-shot challenge to Paul Ryan helped galvanize progressives nationwide and drive Ryan into retirement. Bryce, and many others portrayed in Kaufman’s searing account, have shown that the state’s progressive spirit persists. Kaufman has written for The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Nation, and elsewhere. This event will be a Q&A between Kaufman and Hopkins assistant professor Bécquer Seguín, who lived in Wisconsin during the year the state went for Trump.
