Based on her forthcoming book, historian Kathleen Belew will walk you through a history of 1990s Colorado, where high-profile kidnappings and murders, right-wing religious ideology, and a mass shooting exposed rents in America’s social fabric, and dramatically changed our relationship with place, violence, and politics (Random House).

Dr. Kathleen Belew is an associate professor of history at Northwestern University. Her award-winning teaching centers on the broad themes of history of the present, conservatism, race, gender, violence, identity, and the meaning of war.

The event is co-sponsored by the Center for Judaic Studies, the Center on American Politics, Critical Race & Ethnic Studies, and the Interdisciplinary Research Institute for the Study of (In)Equality (IRISE).
