Discussion

Yevgeniy Vorobeychik

Yevgeniy Vorobeychik left a negative review 1/27/2021

The talk was largely comprised of a whirlwind survey of a number of topics, with little in-depth discussion of any one of them. When the speaker made claims, he rarely provided a scholarly argument and/or evidence in their support. For example, the claim that poor whites in the South did not support public education was made with no evidence to support it, and this topic itself seems interesting enough to delve into in some depth (for example, if they didn't, why not? were there public debates on the subject? perhaps the Southern elite actively tried to discourage pursuit of public education, which gave an erroneous perception of a lack of broad support for it). Overall, I would have far preferred a more narrowly scoped talk that gets far deeper into the issues.
