“The Landscape of Civic Opportunity and Collective Action in America”

Hosted by Hahrie Han

Join Professor Hahrie Han, co-author of American Government: Power and Purpose, for a live lecture and Q&A on Election Day! During this lecture, Professor Han will discuss how a healthy democracy depends on the ability of people from all backgrounds to participate in collective life. Yet, as Alexis de Tocqueville famously argued, such participation depends on a network of formal and informal civic associations that act as ‘schools of democracy’ that equip people for participation in a pluralistic democracy. What do those schools of democracy look like in the 21st century? This project harnesses big data and the tools of computational social science to develop a map of civic opportunity in America and reflect on the implications of these patterns for contemporary politics, including the operation of campaigns and elections.
