Guest Speaker- Luke Berryman

This evening students gathered in the common room to listen to a talk entitled “Beyond Real and Fake: Notes From Trump’s America” from Oxbridge Academic Programs very own Dr. Luke Berryman. This talk was about Dr. Berryman’s thoughts as a Brit who moved to the United States in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election and his impressions of life in his new home. His talked touched on how the themes of race, nostalgia, money, and performance are reflected in the United States’ and the world’s political culture and how President Trump’s election is reflective of greater societal themes. Students were captivated by the talk and stuck around long after to ask questions.
