Arlie Russell Hochschild, Ph.D., is an eminent sociologist and professor emerita at UC Berkeley.  She is the author of nine books, including The Second ShiftThe Time BindThe Managed Heart, and The Outsourced Self.  Three of her books have been named as New York Times notable books of the year and her work has been translated into sixteen languages.  The winner of the Ulysses Medal and the Guggenheim and Mellon grants, she lives in Berkeley, CA.

In her newest book and the focus of our discussion, Strangers in Their Own Land, Hochschild journeys into Louisiana bayou country, the heartland of the nation's political right, in order to understand how the conservative white working class sees America.  With compassion and empathy, she gets to know people who strongly oppose many of the ideas she champions.  She discovers the narratives that give meaning to their lives and explains their political convictions.  She attempts to bridge the deep divides in our current political landscape.  Through the sociology of emotion, Hochschild finds answers to one of the important questions of contemporary American politics: Why do the people who would seem to benefit most from "liberal" government intervention stand opposed to it?  What is the appeal of Donald Trump?

 

Educational Objectives:
Participants will be able to
  • describe Hochschild’s “sociology of empathy” for bridging differences with people who have radically different po-litical views from one’s own.
  • describe three factors that contribute to understanding why people who seem most to benefit from “liberal” government intervention stand opposed to it.
