November 5 – The American Left: A New Democratic Party?


 
Introducing the third lecture in our four-part series dedicated to the American midterms: America Week!
In popular opinion the American left is perceived as comparable to the European center-right. And during its history the Democratic Party has alternated between more progressive and more centrist positions. But after the success of Bernie Sanders many have argued that a new leftist awakening has begun which will bring a wave of democratic socialism into the political system – but is that really the case? To put the situation of the Democratic Party into the right perspective this lecture will focus on the past, present and future of left-wing politics in the United States by putting it into the context of American political history.
