Populism in historical perspective

Professor Maxine Molyneux, UCL

The last decade has seen the rise of politicians, parties and governments to whom the label ‘populist’ can usefully be applied - in Europe and elsewhere. But media responses to this global shift tend to focus on recent phenomena, be these Brexit, Alternative für Deutschland, or Donald Trump. There has been less interest in historicising these phenomena.
This conference will address the topic of twentieth and twenty-first century populism across a broad geographical range. Bringing together sociologists, political scientists, and historians, we will explore the factors which shape its form, as well as the reasons for its apparent recent upsurge.
The event is free but please email us to RSVP.
