The ‘popular’ and ‘populism’ are central threads in Latin American history and have returned to prominence in the last decade and a half. This one-day event offers a multidisciplinary approach to the question of the politics of the popular. Bringing in analysis of various Latin American countries, institutions, and popular actors, it hopes to contribute to a broader understanding of how the conference’s key themes translate globally and to such issues as Occupy, Indignados, Middle East uprisings, as well as the recent unrest in Venezuela.

This event in free and open to the public. Photo ID is required to enter the building.
