The Populist Challenge: A European Perspective
September 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
CES Visiting Scholar Christiane Lemke will address the rise of right and left-wing populism after the Eurozone crisis and the refugee crisis. Relevant to the upcoming 2019 European Parliament elections, her talk will suggest some conceptual commonalities but also differences between countries.
Christiane Lemke is Professor of Political Science and Director of International Relations and European Studies in the Institute of Political Science at Leibniz University Hannover. From 2010-14, she held the Max Weber Chair at New York University. Professor Lemke received her Ph.D. from the Faculty of Philosophy and Social Sciences at the Free University in Berlin and went on to earn her Habilitation Venia legendi in Political Science from the same institution. Professor Lemke has been a visiting scholar at a number of US institutions over the years as she has maintained her permanent faculty positions in Germany. She has taught courses at UNC-Chapel Hill, Stanford University, Harvard University, and Suffolk University.
