George Mason University hosted a symposium to honor the memory and scholarship of the late Susan Tolchin, a professor emerita in the institution’s Schar School of Policy and Government. Professor Tolchin in 1996 authored the book, The Angry American: How Voter Rage is the Changing the Nation. The discussion focused on the role of voter anger in the 2016 presidential election and its impact on the political process.

Theda Skocpol in a slide presentation described some of the reasons she believes led to Donald Trump becoming the 2016 Republican presidential nominee, and she also spoke briefly about the presidential campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT). Following Professor Skocpol’s remarks, Marvin Kolb moderated a forum on the 2016 election cycle. close
