Corey Robin, a political theorist at Brooklyn College, is a highly-regarded, keen observer of the contemporary political scene.  His book The Reactionary Mind was the result of a decade-long foray into the conservative mind, tracing conservatism back to its roots in the reaction against the French Revolution.  When its first edition appeared in 2011, it set off a fierce debate. It has since been acclaimed as "the book that predicted Trump" and "one of the more influential political works of the last decade.” Robin shares his insights on the conservative tradition of political thought in the United States in this convocation presentation.
