Closing Keynote

American Nations – The Power of Regionalism

Colin Woodard, Author and Journalist, State and National Affairs Writer, Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram

Award-winning journalist and author of American Nations, Colin Woodard will discuss the true fault lines along which our country's distinct identities, ideological divisions and cultural characteristics have developed and how they continue to shape regional and local politics today. Understanding what lies behind the polarization of American politics and honoring the idiosyncrasies in culture and history may help reconcile regional tensions and advance the collaboration needed to resolve the challenges at hand.
