Societas Podcast - Craig Calhoun, President » Blog Archive » Episode #8: Populism, Tea Parties and Occupations - 2011-10-28 (interview ~30 min)


// IN this second series of interviews for the podcast Societas, editorial director Paul Price gets sociologist and historian Craig Calhoun to explore the various strands of social, economic, and political change that are creating the sense that advanced capitalist societies are coming “unstuck.” Radical populism on the right and left, deindustrialization in the North and an economic boom in the South, failing financial institutions, political gridlock, the reawakening of geopolitics after the heyday of globalization, the Arab Spring: grab a seat and take a listen to the astute and balanced assessments of Professor Calhoun as he puts the apparent chaos of the moment in solid historical perspective.
