Parties, the Press, and Political Politeness ​(Well, Not Really!) with Dr. Matthew Warshauer

May 2 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for an in-person history lecture with Dr. Matthew Warshauer!

“Parties, the Press, and Political Politeness ​(Well, Not Really!)”

Can’t we all just get along? Let’s go back to the good old days when partisanship wasn’t so bad, the press was fairly balanced, and courtesy reigned over American politics! Really? Join Matt Warshauer, professor of history at Central Connecticut State University, and explore the early partisan battles that almost ended the newly formed Union while the ink on the Constitution was still wet. Let’s find out if there was ever a time in America when partisanship and the press didn’t do battle.
