Professor Emerita of Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley and author of Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right Arlie Hochschild joined Academic Dean and Ford Foundation Professor of Democracy and Citizenship at the Harvard Kennedy School Archon Fung in conversation at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum. Professor Hochschild engaged in a truly fascinating conversation on the conservative, blue-collar experience in the South. In a spirit of empathy, Hochschild encouraged engagement and understanding in a larger attempt to find common ground between the majority of those at Harvard in the "liberal elite" and her new-found acquaintances in the Louisiana bayou region.
