Desmond King is the Andrew Mellon Professor of Government at Nuffield College, Oxford. Professor King is one of the leading scholars of American political development. He has written widely on race (Still A House Divided, with Rogers Smith 2011), immigration (Making Americans, 2001), eugenics (Sterilized by the State, with Randall Hansen 2013), and national identity (The Liberty of Strangers, 2006). In this lecture, Professor King will use a developmental, historical lens to understand the place of populism in contemporary American politics.
