Understanding Authoritarianism in the U.S. and Abroad

Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2021

4:45 p.m. - 6 p.m.

Location: Zoom

In the news and on social media, we see a worrisome rise in authoritarianism around the world, including here in the US. This rise sparks fears about the development of totalitarian regimes and raises questions about relationships between authoritarianism and democracy. Panelists offer multiple disciplinary approaches as they provide lenses for us to understand what we are seeing around the world and in Macalester's local contexts.

Join this panel discussion with Professors Erik Davis (Religious Studies), Olga González (Annan IGC, Anthropology, Latin American Studies), Bill Hart (Religious Studies, American Studies), and Lisa Mueller (Political Science), moderated by Dean Donna Maeda (Annan IGC, American Studies).
