On Wednesday, September 2, at 12:00 pm (noon) PDT, Joe Lowndes ’90 will discuss the discursive links between the Trump campaign and the emergent right-wing street violence in historical context in an online talk titled “Populism: Radicalism and the 2020 Election.”

The talk is part of the “2020 Election Event Series” organized by The Thomas S. Foley Institute for Public Policy and Public Service at Washington State University.

Joe Lowndes is associate professor of political science at the University of Oregon. He researches and writes on right-wing politics, race, populism, and U.S. political development. His most recent co-authored book, Producers, Parasites, Patriots: Race and the New Right-Wing Politics of Precarity, explores the complex racial politics of the contemporary U.S. right from the militia movement to the alt-right to the mainstream Republican Party. He also authored the book From the New Deal to the New Right: Race and the Southern Origins of Modern Conservatism.
