Populism and Nationalism in the Americas

Fri, May 25, 10:45am to 12:15pm, TBA

Session Submission Type: Panel


Latin America is well-known for its populist politics, both in the past and present. Not surprisingly, there exists a rich set of case studies and lively debates around how to theorize populism and its relationship to democracy. What has received comparatively less attention, however, is the connection between populism and nationalism. Is populist mobilization always nationalist? And when does populist nationalism succeed as a political strategy, and when does it fail to gain wider salience? These theoretical questions frame the proposed panel that brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers whose substantive work covers various theoretical perspectives and countries in the region.
