Talk Topic: Could the People of the Great Plains Have Distinctive Character Traits?
with John Hibbing, Political Science Professor, UNL
*This event will be held at the Happy Raven, 122 N 11th St.

Is it possible that just be residing in the Great Plains, we have our own set of deep and distinct identities, values, philosophies, creeds, and personalities? UNL Political Science Professor John Hibbing explores how we might answer these questions and what it says about the Great Plains as a region. Hibbing studies how biological variations change the way people respond to politics and the environment.
