Tea Party activism: the politics of organisation in a leaderless movement
Lecture Theatre 103 |
UCL – Institute of the Americas
51 Gordon Square | London | WC1H 0PQ | United Kingdom
Dr Robert Busby, Senior Lecturer in Politics, Liverpool Hope University
Ever since it burst on the US political scene in 2009-10, the Tea Party movement has challenged the norms of American politics. In this talk, political scientist Robert Busby explores one of the most interesting facets of this movement - the paradox of its need for organization like any political force and its claims to be leaderless in contrast to the establishment-nature of the two main parties.
The presentation will consider issues of Tea Party coordination, finance, and promotion and assess the implications of its interactions with the Republican party. The talk will be of interest to anyone with a fascination for modern American politics and its current state of polarization.
