American Regionalism and Politics Colin Woodard, author of American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America, spoke about the history of regionalism and cultural conflict in America. He used data from the 2008 and 2012 elections to dispel “myths” about “red states” and “blue states” and to explain away partisanship with the claim that our culture wars were inevitable. This public lecture in Iowa State University’s Memorial Hall was part of the 2015-16 National Affairs Series: When American Values Are in Conflict co-sponsored by Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication; National Affairs; Political Science; Technology, Globalization and Culture Series; and the Student Government funded Committee on Lectures. close
