Becoming Right: How Campuses Shape Young Conservatives with Amy J. Binder

3/17/2014; 7 minutes

UC San Diego sociologist Amy Binder explains two prevalent conservative styles that she and her co-author Kate Wood found on today's college campuses. At "Western Public," students often engaged in a provocative style, looking to poke fun and enrage liberals, whereas at "Eastern Elite," conservative students embraced a more civil style, leading to friendlier interactions with other students who disagreed with them. The authors argue that these styles emerge from the cultural and organizational features of each campus. (#25590)
