The Comeback of Populism - International BAA Conference 2017


The 17th International Academy Conference of the Bavarian American Academy The Comeback of Populism: Transatlantic Perspectives takes place from July 6 - July 8, 2017 at the Amerikahaus in Munich.


The conference will evaluate the return of populism in a diachronic and synchronic perspective. Working through populism's simplifications and mystifications, the conference will examine its discursive strategies in nuanced ways.

It is organized by the Bavarian American Academy in cooperation with the Bavarian State Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs, Sciences and Arts and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.

There is no conference fee and the conference is open to the public; registration is requested.
