FDR Felt The Bern: Bernie Sanders in Historical Perspective


This Olio will explore the historical context behind Bernie Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign. We will pay particular attention to American political history since the Great Depression in explaining Sanders' ideas and policies, but we will also be exploring the rise of Jacksonian democracy in the 1830s and the populist and progressive movements of the 19th and early 20th century.  Attendees are encouraged to bring iPhones and/or tablets, as we will be reviewing Sanders' Facebook page and Twitter feeds, as well as examine other multimedia and images related to the history of American political culture.




Location: Coworkrs Flatiron

115 E 23rd St, New York, NY 10010
