Lecture: "Does Trump's Populism Threaten U.S. Democracy? Lessons from Latin America and Europe"

-

Location: Hesburgh Center C103

A lecture by Kenneth Roberts, the Richard J. Schwartz Professor of Government at Cornell University, and Kurt Weylandthe Mike Hogg Professor in Liberal Arts in government at the University of Texas at Austin. Donald Trump is perhaps the first populist president of the United States since Andrew Jackson‚ but many Latin American and European countries have had lengthy experiences with populism. In this dialogue, two scholars of comparative politics with differing perspectives will examine what lessons these international experiences can offer us for understanding the Trump presidency. Under what conditions do populist leaders maintain or even increase their political support? What policies have typically been successful in generating mass support‚ and which strategies have backfired? What can the opposition do to counter populist leaders? Most importantly, what can Latin American and European experiences with populism teach us about the impact that the Trump presidency is likely to have on democracy in the United States? Is Trump likely to weaken horizontal accountability‚ restrict civil liberties‚ and undermine the rule of law as some populists have done in other countries or are U.S. institutions‚ traditions‚ and opposition forces sufficiently strong to resist a populist assault?…

Kellogg Work-in-Progress: "A Revolution in Forgiveness"

-

A Kellogg Work-in-Progress Seminar with Faculty Fellow Katie Jarvis.

When French revolutionaries wrested the power to pardon from the Church and the crown, they reconfigured the role everyday citizens played in forgiveness, while also democratizing sites of civil reconciliation. Jarvis’s book project, Democratizing Forgiveness: Reconciling Citizens in Revolutionary France, analyzes how revolutionaries refashioned forgiveness through economic, judicial, and cultural venues from 1789 to 1802. It explores how citizens repaired broken bonds by arbitrating neighborhood disputes, forgiving debts, and settling bankruptcies in new courts. It also considers how citizens reconceptualized reconciliation through sacramental confession, innovative religious cults, and youth education. Her Work-in-Progress paper focuses on new conciliation practices before the justices of the peace, which were established in 1790. It asks how, using these neighborhood courts, men and women changed how they framed their appeals and resolved local conflicts. While pursuing quotidian justice, citizens participated in the state’s project to recreate civil relationships.…
