Populist movements are reshaping politics in Europe, the United States, and other parts of the world. This course explores various explanations for the populist wave and considers its implications for the future of liberal democracy, particularly in the United States. We will then examine precedents and explanations for the rise of populism in the U.S. Finally, we will ask what these findings imply for civic engagement. How can political participation be broadened and deepened in the current environment? What forms of political participation make liberal democracy more resilient, and what forms might undermine it? If there is “good” participation and “bad” participation, how can we get more of the former and less of the latter?
We have a survey that we’d like you to complete it is anonymous but we will be able to see how many students in each course complete the survey. All courses with a 75% or better survey completion by Midnight Dec. 11thwill be eligible to pick up a free cookie from the Nashman Center on Friday the 13th(winners announced the morning of Dec. 12th). The survey will ask you to click the box for your course (so there is the potential to get many cookies if you are in more than one designated class).
