Forms of Authoritarianism Conference

Thursday, September 20 @ 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 Turkey, from Honduras to Venezuela, and from Europe to the United States.  It will also 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).
