European Postgraduate Workshop ‘Populism in History and Today’ (September 13-16 2022, Berlin)

Populism is mostly regarded as a contemporary phenomenon. Yet scholars have stressed that to understand its contemporary manifestations, we also need to understand its historical roots. To bring students and scholars together to study populism in history and today, the Institute for German and European Studies (IGES) at the University of Birmingham and the Jean Monnet Chair at the Willy-Brandt-Centre (WBZ) at the University of Wrocław, and the Centre for Research on Anti-Semitism (ZfA) at the Technical University in Berlin are organising a 4-day European Postgraduate Workshop in Berlin, focusing on the topic ‘Populism in History and Today’. The workshop offers doctoral and advanced MA students the opportunity to gain cutting-edge research skills and practise these using original materials compiled by leading political scientists and historians in the field of populism studies.
