The 2022 Critical Theory in Critical Times annual series workshop on April 1 will focus around the work of Nadia Urbinati (Kyriakos Tsakopoulos Professor of Political Theory, Columbia University) and, in particular, her book Me the People: How Populism Transforms Democracy (Harvard University Press). Nadia Urbinati will discuss this work with four commentators: William Mazzarella (University of Chicago), Paulina Ochoa Espejo (Haverford College), Dilip Gaonkar (Northwestern), and Axel Mueller (Northwestern).
The workshop will allow for a comfortable discussion format, and a stimulating dialogue between faculty and graduate students. We are glad to offer an opportunity to discuss this groundbreaking work with Nadia Urbinati herself.
This event is generously co-sponsored by The Center for Global Culture and Communication, the Kreeger-Wolf foundation, the Critical Theory Cluster, and the Department of Philosophy.
