The White Working-Class and the 2016 Presidential Election

As one of the biggest upsets in recent political history, the 2016 presidential election shocked both the nation and the world.  Throughout the campaign season, it was widely considered an unusual election, and yet, the exit polls were very typical of recent elections—with the exception of the white working-class vote.  Given this, perhaps the most important questions that can be asked of the election are the following: what happened with the white working-class vote in 2016 and just how unprecedented was it?

A Capabilities Approach to Global Human Development: Civil Society and the Deliberative Process in the Sustainable Development Goals

The most significant improvement from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has been an increased focus on the participation of civil society in the creation and execution of global human development agendas. Underlying this change is the Capabilities Approach of Martha Nussbaum, which supports a broadening of democratic deliberation to increase the participation of civil society in global development processes.

Rethinking National Narratives: Developing a Civic Education of Estrangement and Love

The immense polarization and division in America today is rooted in two diametrically opposed American historical narratives: "America the Great" and "America the Oppressor." In my thesis I argue that neither of these historical narratives is compatible with the demands of American civic education. Thus, I propose the formation of a new national narrative: one that presents American history not as as a one-sided national myth but a common project to close the gaps between American ideals and current realities.
