UW-Madison political scientist Kathy Cramer was years ahead of her time in examining rural political consciousness in America. Between 2007 and 2012, she traveled in rural Wisconsin to listen to diner and coffee-shop conversations to understand how residents there view the political world. The resulting book, “The Politics of Resentment” published in early 2016, was a prescient look at how that worldview would affect 2016’s momentous election.
Please join us for a special edition of Cap Times Talks featuring Cramer interviewed by our political reporter, Jessie Opoien, at the High Noon Saloon on Tuesday, Jan. 16. They’ll talk about Wisconsin’s 2018 gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races and more as well.
The event is free and will start with a meet-and-greet at 6:30 p.m. at the High Noon, 701 E. Washington Ave. The discussion itself will start at 7, ending after an hour or so.
