Prof. Daniel Immerwahr's article is published in The New Yorker
October 17, 2023
Prof. Daniel Immerwahr contributes an article to The New Yorker. His article about rural United States is titled "Beyond the Myth of Rural America." It's available online now, and it will be in print in about a week.
There is a deep and widening split in this country between rural and urban, one that is increasingly defining our politics. This article reflects on how we got there, with detours into American Gothic, Dollar General stores, and why Sarah Palin's accent sounds the way it does. A pdf is available here.
