The State of American Democracy, featuring Dr. Timothy Snyder

Bowdoin College: “In the aftermath of the January 6 attack on the Capitol, the College is presenting a series of discussions with leading experts on the current state and future prospects for American democracy. Timothy Snyder is the Richard C. Levin Professor of History at Yale University and a permanent fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna. He specializes in the history of fascism in twentieth-century Europe. He is the author of On Tyranny, described by The Washington Post as “a slim book that fits alongside your pocket Constitution and feels only slightly less vital,” and published an essay in The New York Times titled “The American Abyss: A historian of fascism and political atrocity on Trump, the mob and what comes next.” about the sources and meanings of the January 6 insurrection. Moderated by Page Herrlinger, associate professor of history.
