Historians' Perspectives on the Rise of Donald J. Trump

The 2016 presidential race and the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States revealed divisive social, cultural, and political issues convulsing the United States, many of which have deep historical roots.

The members of the Organization of American Historians, a professional society devoted to the teaching and study of U.S. history, can offer a valuable public service during these fractious times by providing historical perspectives on present events.

Listed below are the OAH Distinguished Lecturers from across the country who stand ready to speak about these important issues.

The OAH Distinguished Lectureship Program, with support and guidance from the OAH Executive Board, has framed this new initiative as a resource for all who wish to foster dialogue on college campuses and in communities nationwide. We hope it will advance critical thinking about both past and present.

OAH Lecture fees start at $1,000, payable to the OAH, plus travel expenses, reimbursed directly to the speaker. We are committed to working with student and nonprofit groups to minimize costs.

Contact us with any questions or to start the invitation process.

Featured Lecture

OAH Distinguished Lecturer Dan Feller, "Andrew Jackson and Donald Trump: Outsiders Alike?"
