Monday, 10/14 at 6pm
What is “populism,” exactly, and how can it describe such disparate phenomena as left-wing social movements and xenophobic anti-immigrant policies? Our speakers will analyze how the term is used today and provide a critical perspective grounded in Latin American politics, past and present. Moderated by Bécquer Seguín, Johns Hopkins University.
