In this talk, Professor Huber will focus on the notion that partisan “teamism” is tearing the country apart. He will critically examine evidence about partisan bias in perceptions of facts, the state of the economy, social relations, and about how to craft bipartisan solutions to pressing problems. He will also discuss efforts on campus generally, and in the Political Science Department in particular, to ensure that Yale does not reinforce partisan divisions.
