MSU Professor Matthew Grossmann
Polarized by Degrees: How the Diploma Divide and the Culture War Transformed American Politics
Tuesday, November 14, 2023 @7p
at the Bloomfield Township Public Library
Matt Grossmann is Director of the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research (IPPSR) and Professor of Political Science at Michigan State University. Most recently, Dr. Grossmann published How Social Science Got Better: Overcoming Bias with More Evidence, Diversity, and Self-Reflection (Oxford University Press, 2021) on the topics of Trump's election, the Great Recession, what makes humans unique, models of infectious disease, social immobility, and racial bias in policing.
His book, Red State Blues: How the Conservative Revolution Stalled in the States, is from Cambridge University Press. He finds that while the Republican Party has gained substantial political control of state governments it has largely failed to enact policies that advance conservative goals.
In this presentation, Professor Grossmann will be discussing the upcoming elections and the effects of redistricting.
