About this Event



The series is organized by the Deindustrialization and the Politics of Our Time SSHRC Partnership project’s Industrial Closures component, as a first step in thinking transnationally about deindustrialization and its politics. Its goal is to critically examine six keywords in deindustrialization studies and consider their historical emergence and explanatory power across multiple national and thematic contexts. What do these concepts offer us? Why do some concepts emerge in one national context but not another or come to have different meanings? And what are the adjacent or intersecting concepts that emerge in their stead?

6. Populism / populisme/ Populismo / Populismus

Friday March 12th 10h00-12h00 EST

Chairperson: Stefan Berger (or Steven High)

Other Presenters: James Rhodes, Gilda Zazzara, Marion Fontaine, Stefan Moitra, Sean O’Connell, Greg Wilson.

Populism is probably the most important keyword that our research project will be chewing on over the next seven years. The panel will consider its emergence in different national contexts, its relationship to deindustrialization, what it offers us conceptually and politically, and what it does not.
