Thursday, March 22 @ Hartford Club (next to UConn Hartford campus). 9am-5pm.
This one-day conference brings together scholars and journalists from the University of Connecticut and across the region to discuss the various forms that authoritarianism is taking in the world today , from the Philippines to India, to Honduras and Venezuela, to Europe and the United States. It also aims to place this authoritarianism in historical perspective, comparing it to the anti-democratic currents of yesterday, whether in fascist Europe or in the Cold War dictatorships of Latin America.
The keynote speaker will be Ben Kiernan (Yale University).
