All through US history, especially since 2016, critics have accused certain segments of the American public with ignorance, stupidity, thoughtlessness, and anti-intellectualism. One of the nation’s prominent historians, Richard Hofstadter, first charted these topics in his 1963 book, Anti-Intellectualism in American Life. That study earned the 1964 Pulitzer Prize, and historians have written in its shadow ever since.
This seminar consists of a close reading of that book, as well as its reception and legacy.
