Harper Lecture: Professor Susan Stokes on The Rhetoric of Democracy Erosion

April 14, 2019
2:00pm - 4:00pm
W Minneapolis - The Foshay, 821Marquette Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55402
$20, $10, free

A growing number of elected leaders come into office through democratic means but then proceed to threaten democratic institutions. The campaign statements of these politicians might represent an early-warning system that democracy could be threatened under their administrations. But on the campaign trail, do they sound any different from other, less disruptive candidates? Susan Stokes uses quantitative and qualitative analysis of candidate speeches to explore how politicians use terms of unity and division, ideas about the identities of “the people” and their enemies, and distinctive cues that elicit emotions ranging from anger and fear to enthusiasm and optimism.

Susan Stokes is the Tiffany and Margaret Blake Distinguished Service Professor of Political Science and director of the Chicago Center on Democracy. Her research interests include democratic theory, democracy in developing societies, distributive politics, and comparative political behavior. Her research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, Fulbright Program, American Philosophical Society, and Russell Sage Foundation. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Become a TCAN Member

Interested alumni organizations must meet each of the requirements listed below to qualify for membership in TCAN. All new applications are reviewed by the TCAN membership board. To learn more about our association or to request affiliation, please contact us.

New to the area? We invite interested alumni to contact their local affiliated clubs for membership and to receive upcoming TCAN event notifications. You're also invited to join our TCAN LinkedIn Group.

01/04

Nationally Ranked

We believe that the overall ranking number is a sufficient surrogate for a measure of quality. Therefore the college or university must have been nationally ranked as a top‐50 college or university, according to U.S. News and World Report, within each of the last three years.

02/04

Located Outside of Minnesota

TCAN was founded as a support group for university alumni organizations from colleges located primarily outside the Midwest. A geographical eligibility criterion ensures that alumni groups with a significant membership base will not dominate TCAN events.

03/04

Undergrad Population of Less than 10,000

We believe that the size of a college's undergraduate program offers a surrogate measure of not only the quality of the school, but also the type of cultural experience that embodies a program of liberal arts education and instills a love of learning.

04/04

Alumni Org. must be a Bona Fide Club

We feel it is important that all member clubs are sanctioned, well‐established, and able to contribute to the Network upon admission. Therefore all organizations seeking membership must typically have at least 10 members and 2 years of operating history.
