Populism: Latin America in Comparative Perspective

February 15th, 2019

On the 15th of February, CIPR (Tulane University) held an international Conference on Populism. There were three panels: in the first, Populism and Democracy, Enrique Peruzzotti (Universidad Di Tella, Argentina), Gerardo Aboy (Universidad de San Martin, Argentina) and Raul Sanchez Urribarri (La Trobe University, Australia) analyzed the dynamics of populism in power, the pertinence of certain theoretical assumptions about classic populism, and the connections between populist regime politics and judicial dynamics. In the second panel, Populism, Parties and Ideology, David Smilde (Tulane University, USA), Moira MacKinnon (Universidad de Tres de Febrero, Argentina) and Humberto Cucchetti (CONICET, Argentina) explored the functions of populist ideology in generating support among the population, the relations between leader and followers within a populist party, and the connections between the Pope‘€™s ideology and Peronism. In the final panel, Global Populism, Andres Malamud (Lisboa University, Portugal), Carlos Waisman (University of California, San Diego, USA) and Manuel Anselmi (Unitelma Sapienza, Italy) examined the effect of populism in presidential meetings for regional integration, the different generative contexts of populism in Latin America, Europe and the US, and the development of various theoretical interpretations of populism in a global perspective.

Explore the Stories and Creatures of Latin America: Pebbles Center collaboration with the Audubon Nature Institute

View Full Event Description

Join us as we learn about rainforests and the creatures that live there through books and with the help of special visitors from Audubon Zoo. This program is part of the Pebbles Center series of programs on Latin America. It will incorporate S.T.E.A.M. [Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math] activities and highlight the importance of the arts. Participants will meet several animals native to Central and South America with Audubon’s Zoomobile. We will discuss their ecosystems and the challenges they face then learn how art can help conservation. A summer reading list provided by the Pebbles Center will explore the diverse geography of Latin America. If readers read all books by the end of the Summer Reading Program, they will be presented with an honorable award during the annual Celebración Latina at the Zoo this Fall 2019.
