Arlie Hochschild describes her journey from Berkeley, her own liberal cultural enclave, to Louisiana, a conservative one. She explores her choice of research site, her effort to remove her own political alarm system, and during five years of research, to climb over what she calls an "empathy wall." She focuses on her concept of the "deep story" – a version of which underlies all political belief, she argues, and will end with the possibilities of finding common ground across the political divide. Recorded on 10.11.2017. (#32997)
