Faculty in the News: Dr. Tedesco on Political Correctness and Donald Trump
Dr. Laura Tedesco (Political Science Program Director) recently published the article, "La reivindicación de lo correcto," in Agenda Pública, an online publication for analysis of current economic, legal, political and social topics in Spain. She argues that political correctness has changed our social contract and warns of the risks that we can expect to encounter if we stop accepting and defending tolerance.
Additionally, Dr. Tedesco's article, "The Dam has Burst: Trump legitimizes politically incorrect," appeared in this week's London School of Economics and Political Science blog. She argues that Trump's election has undone previous advances in promoting tolerance for minorities. She urges progressive political movements to mobilize and react to this new political climate of uncertainty.
