“Gender and Populism: British, French and US Perspectives“
There is a popular image of right-ring populism being driven by supporters who are disproportinately older, white men. This seminar will examine in detail the gendered aspects of populism, focusing in particular upon the cases of Britain, France and the US.
To what exent are women voting, standing and campaigning for left and right wing populist parties? What is driving support for populist parties (or lack of it) among women? These and other key questions will be examined in a series of short talks from a panel of leading academic expects on gender and populism, followed by a Q&A.
This is the inaugural seminar in a series of events on gender and politics, held jointly by the University of Paris and KCL. Professor Clarisse Berthezene, Paris Diderot University and Professor Jeremy Jennings, KCL will provide a short introduction about the collaboration.
