In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, it is clear that there are major, long-term social, political, and economic issues in America that require close attention. The "Mens et Manus America" initiative will convene a series of research-informed lectures to explore these challenges over the course of the Spring 2017 term. Exit Zero is a documentary about the impacts of deindustrialization and the key role it has played in expanding class inequalities in the U.S.
