Arlie Hochschild

Arlie Hochschild has been called "one of the most imaginative and productive feminist sociologists of the last thirty years." She's written a number of books including The Second Shift, The Time Bind and The Outsourced Self.  She's a professor emerita at UC Berkeley and lately she's been spending her time trying to understand the rise of the American Right–the only way that she could do that was to leave her Berkeley bubble and go to Louisiana to meet the real people of the Tea Party, not the caricatures. She shares her five year journey in her new book Strangers in Their Own Land. Anger and Mourning on the American Right".
