The event is open to the public and no tickets are required.

Cooper, professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will present “Woodrow Wilson and the Politics of Presidential Elections.” Cooper’s presentation will focus on the ideas and cultural differences that fueled the political rivalry between Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt, and on how that rivalry continues to influence the presidential political contests of our own time. 

Copper is the author of numerous books on political history of the Progressive Era, including a highly acclaimed biography of Woodrow Wilson. His other books include “Breaking the Heart of the World: Woodrow Wilson and the Fight for the League of Nations,” “The Warrior and the Priest: Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson” and “The Vanity of Power: American Isolationism and the First World War, 1914-1917.”
