Yale Club of Boston - Tea Parties Past & Present
Wed, 12/01/2010 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Pundits and journalists have speculated extensively about the meaning of the current "tea party movement." Join two local experts, both Yale graduates, as they discuss the movement from two perspectives. One has studied the original Boston Tea Party and its legacy in the United States and beyond; the other has studied populist movements worldwide.
Benjamin L. Carp TC '98 is Associate Professor of History at Tufts. A specialist on the American Revolution, he has written about political mobilization, early American nationalism, and the burning of New York City in 1776. His most recent book is Defiance of the Patriots: The Boston Tea Party and the Making of America.
David Art BK '95 is Associate Professor of Political Science at Tufts. Professor Art focuses on comparative politics, particularly in Europe. He has written on the Nazi past in Germany and Austria, anti-immigrant parties in Europe, and the organization of new political movements.
The usual refreshments will include some of the teas which were actually dumped into the Boston Harbor in 1773. Dr. Carp will illuminate.
