“The Urban-Rural Divide in American History Or, Why Can't We Get Along?”

6:30 p.m. Friday, June 10, 2022

Dr. Steven Conn

We are a nation of urbanites, and yet we are filled with people who don’t like cities very much. The rural-urban divide is one of the nation's oldest political rifts. The result has been an ever-widening debate over who — urban or rural — is a “real American.” Dr. Steven Conn will explore the deep roots of the American hostility toward our cities and ask questions about our continuing nostalgia for rural life.
