Fall 2017 Event Themes

Populism Series

What fuels the rise of populism in various parts of Europe, Eurasia, and beyond? Speakers in this series will discuss genealogies and varieties of populism, and ponder how 21st-century populisms are related to other key phenomena of our times—globalization, neoliberalism, and pluralism.

Regionalism Series

What is the meaning of regionalism at the twin age of nationalism and European Unionism? Speakers will discuss the political and academic formation and transformation of regions like “Europe,” “Eastern Europe,” or “the Balkans,” and reflect on the implications of reframing regional boundaries for our understanding of various European societies.
