The Christian Right from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Donald Trump

Lecture Description

This lecture charts the political path of evangelical populism from its emergence in opposition to FDR in the 1930s to its ultimate ascent as a political force in the age of Trump. While accounting for the economic, cultural, and political factors that fueled the rise of the evangelical right on domestic soil, this lecture also draws connections to transnational trends and developments.
