Morse Bookmarks: How the Heartland Went Red

Thursday, May 2 at 12:30pm to 2:00pm

Gerlinger Hall, Gerlinger Lounge
1468 University Street, Eugene, OR 97403

Stephanie Ternullo, assistant professor in the government department at Harvard, will discuss her new book, How the Heartland Went Red: Why Local Forces Matter in an Age of Nationalized Politics.

 How the Heartland Went Red shows how place informs Americans’ partisan attachments through a comparative study of three White, postindustrial cities during the 2020 presidential election. The book argues that we can best understand the reddening of the American Heartland by examining how local contexts have sped up or slowed down White voters’ turn toward the right.
