Politics of Our Rural Land: An Interview with Curt Meine (via Zoom)

“As rural Wisconsin’s fortunes declined, its political importance has grown,” writes journalist Dan Kaufman in a recent national article on the importance of Wisconsin ahead of the 2020 election. In this far-reaching interview with Curt Meine (environmental historian; co-editor, Driftless Reader) we will delve into the political importance of rural Wisconsin, the realities of America’s urban-rural divide, the transformation and challenges of today’s agriculture, and more.

Wednesday, October 28, 7-8 p.m. 

$10/per person. Registration deadline is Tuesday, October 27 at 4  p.m. The zoom link will be sent via email on the morning of the program.
