Course Detail: O_POPUL - Trump, Brexit, and the Rise of Populism

Populism is on the rise, as evidenced by the surprise passage of Brexit and the election of President Donald Trump. And even though the National Front lost the hotly contested presidential election in France, it is an increasingly influential movement, along with others in Germany, the Netherlands, Greece, and Spain. Come join the discussion as we look at both left- and right-wing populist movements in the U.S. and Europe and try to figure out where they came from and where they are going. Readings will come from news reports, magazine articles, academic journals, book excerpts, and think-tank reports.
