What's that rumbling beneath our feet?

Most elections are consequential, but only a few truly shake a nation—or the world. From contests that brought to power Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Adolf Hitler to the victory of Donald Trump, these "electoral earthquakes" have important implications for democracy, peace, and prosperity.

Historian Glenn Altschuler and political scientist Sidney Tarrow will explore the causes and consequences of such elections, which recently have ranged from shifts in electoral sentiment to anti-establishment ideology in the United States and abroad.

They'll also talk about the divisive forces that contributed to the 2016 U.S. presidential election and how they are shaping what is sure to be a dramatic presidential race in 2020.

We invite you to join a conversation that affects us all.
