Populism After the Midterms: Advance or Retreat?

Dr. Nicol Rae, Dean of MSU College of Letters and Sciences, will present a brief overview of populism in the United States*—its history, its champions, its recent rise in popularity at home and around the world—and discuss what recent midterm election results may suggest about local and national political trends, and the future influence of populism in the US and abroad.

Dean Rae holds an undergraduate degree in politics from Edinburgh University and a doctorate in politics from Oxford University.  His research interests focus on American national political institutions, European government and politics, and conservative politics.  He has served as MSU Dean of the College of Letters and Science since 2013.

*Populism:  A political movement that defends the interests of everyday working men and women and exploits cultural and economic grievances.
