Center for the Study of Politics and Governance, Humphrey School of Public Affairs Presents

America's Forgotten Conservative Tradition

9/20/18, 11:45 AM

About this event

Growing up you learned a powerful story of progressive accomplishment: the writing of the Constitution in the steamy Philadelphia summer of 1787 established representative democracy, the end of the Civil War freed the slaves in the South, and the New Deal rushed forward emergency measures that rescued millions from the Great Depression.  Missing from this national narrative is an enduring and vibrant conservative tradition of resisting the growth of government and fending off interference with individual freedom. Jeff Tulis will discuss the origins and deep roots of the "New Right" that Ronald Reagan and subsequent Republicans advance.

Jeffrey K. Tulis is a professor in the Department of Government at the University of Texas at Austin. His specializes in constitutional thought, the presidency, and political philosophy.  His most recent book is Legacies of Losing in American Politics.  His previous book,  The Rhetorical Presidency, has been described as “[The] canonical book on the history of presidential rhetoric.”

Event Location: Room 180, Humphrey School of Public Affairs
