Becoming Right

This chapter examines three conservative styles in which undergraduates at Eastern Elite University are engaged: civilized discourse, highbrow provocation, and a fuller embrace of campaigning. Civilized discourse is the form of expression that Eastern Elite's conservative students use and philosophize about most frequently, regardless of which right-leaning club they belong to. Members of the university's chapter of the College Republicans were the most avid proponents of the civilized discourse style. The chapter first considers the students' explanations for why certain forms of political expression are preferred or disdained in their clubs and on their wider campus before discussing how organizational structures at Eastern Elite influence students' ideas and behavior.

Keywords:   conservative style, undergraduates, Eastern Elite University, civilized discourse, highbrow provocation, campaigning, conservative students, College Republicans, political expression, organizational structures
