Globalization & the Populist Explosion: The Significance of Ideology?

January 15, 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Saunders Hall Room 244

This presentation by Prof. Manfred Steger argues that the current explosion of right-wing national-populism is intricately connected to shifting perceptions of 'globalization' in the world. Prof. Steger contends that a return to the once dominant but now frequently criticized ideational approach to the study of populism as 'ideology' or 'discourse' can provide insightful, if incomplete, explanations of the current populist moment. WIne & cheese reception to follow talk.
