Varieties of Populism in the United States


Next Monday, November 16th, at 6:30 p.m. Central, I will be giving an online lecture at Rice University on “Varieties of Populism in the United States.” You can register for the online lecture HERE.

Populist movements claim to represent the “people” against entrenched elites. The collective identity of the “people” is not stable. It is contested. Throughout the history of the United States there have been several traditions that have attempted to define the “We the People” specified in the Constitution. Understanding the histories and characteristics of these traditions can clarify how they continue to influence everything from electoral politics to religious community and everyday life.
