The invasion of the Capitol on January 6th, 2021 exposed the combustible confluence of movements and parties that continues to disrupt politics in the United States, and potentially the world.
Join us for the Australian launch of Sidney Tarrow’s Movement and Parties: Critical Connections in American Political Development.
Prof Tarrow is one of the leading scholars of his generation. He will be reflecting on how we should understand the latest wave of populism in the context of the longer relationship between social activism and political institutions, and what the rise of populist movements might mean for the future of democracy.
Sidney Tarrow, the Emeritus Maxwell M. Upson Professor of Government at Cornell University and Adjunct Professor at the Cornell Law School, is author of Movements and Parties: Critical Connections in American Political Development.
Following Prof Tarrow’s presentation, he will be joined by Doug McAdam, The Ray Lyman Wilbur Professor at Stanford University, George Lawson, Professor of International Relations at the Australian National University, and Dr Antonina Gentile, Honorary Research Fellow in the Macquarie School of Social Sciences, reflecting on Movements and Parties and Prof Tarrow’s contribution to political sociology.
