Event description

Description

Populism has recently become a popular framework for understanding the rise of ethnic, racial, and religious nationalist movements over the last decade. Politicians as diverse as Donald Trump, Jair Bolsonaro, Viktor Orban, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Benjamin Netanyahu, Nicolas Maduro, Vladimir Putin, Abdelfattah al-Sisi, and Narendra Modi have been described as “populists” in the western media over the last few years, but what does the term populism represent in different national and historical contexts? What really connects these leaders and movements that have seen such a resurgence recently?

This week-long intensive institute will expose K-12 educators to leading experts in the fields of populism and nationalism, focusing on the interrelated and transnational aspects of these movements on a global scale, traversing the Atlantic world, Africa, and Eurasia. Units and sessions will be devised to help teachers create new lesson plans that will help their students connect the deep histories and diverse political movements to current events, and critically assess the connections and assertions made about these movements and figures on a daily basis.

Our speaker line-up will be announced shortly. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for the duration of the institute. Registration is limited, register now!
