Course Description

Although Donald Trump and the Trump presidency have been called and continue to be referred to as unprecedented, much of their style, ideology and narrative is indeed familiar in American political culture. Following almost two years of a rocky presidency, this seminar will attempt to understand this administration both as unique and as being in line with the traditions of American (political) culture. We will deal with some historical antecedents, especially the presidency of Andrew Jackson (1829-37), Trump’s forays into popular culture (both print and TV), the presidential campaign, and Trump’s first 18 months as president. The mid-term elections will provide us with a better understanding of the future course of Trumpian politics. A reader will be made available.
