In conversation with Alexis L. Boylan, Susan Herbst will discuss her new book, A Troubled Birth: The 1930s and American Public Opinion. A Troubled Birth explores the decade “public opinion” became a commercial and political commodity, and how the circumstances of its origin undergird challenges to democracy today.

Susan Herbst is University Professor of Political Science and President Emeritus. She is author of five books, most recently, A Troubled Birth: The 1930s and American Public Opinion from the University of Chicago Press. Before coming to UConn, she was Professor and Chair of Political Science at Northwestern University, Dean of Liberal Arts at Temple University, and CAO for the University System of Georgia. She holds a B.A. in Political Science from Duke University and a doctorate in Communications from the University of Southern California.
