Episode 29: Right-wing Populism in World History

Please join Bridget, James, Matt, Simon, Thanasis, and Will as we discuss the global history of right-wing populism. What is populism? What is the history of nativist populism? How has it played out across the globe? Where we can trace direct intellectual traditions versus general impulses? Why has it been so effective an organizing force in modern history? How has gender played out in right-wing populism? Is it inherently masculine? Is right-wing populism inevitably if we look historically, to our present day? Where is the crossover between right-wing and left-wing populism? How do conspiracy theories play in populism? How do these ideas spread?
