Political parties, populism, and social movements are all forms of political representation, but typically they are studied in isolation from one another.  This research seminar will explore the interrelationships between them—namely, how populism and social movements tend to emerge where partisan representation is weak or ineffectual, and how populism and social movements can break down or reconfigure party systems.  Readings will include classic theoretical and empirical analyses of parties, populism, and movements, as well as recent works that explore the intersections among them. Students will help lead seminar discussions and write a research paper in one of the three areas of interest.

When Offered Fall.
