Sponsored by the Jean Monnet EU Center of Excellence for Comparative Populism at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Political Science Institute at the University of Brasília.
This international virtual lecture series titled “Populism and the Pandemic- A Comparative Perspective” investigates the response of populists in different countries to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lectures held from November through February will occur every second Tuesday of the month at 11 am US Central Daylight Time (CDT)/14.00 Brasília, Brazil (GMT-3)/18.00 Brussels, Belgium (CET). Please note that the time in Brazil is different from previous lectures, as Europe and the USA have returned to standard time and Brazil does not observe daylight saving time.
