From the Margin to the Mainstream: The Transformation of the Radical Right (Bangor)
February 16, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for a timely and important talk entitled, “From the Margin to the Mainstream: The Transformation of the Radical Right,” by Cas Mudde, an Assistant Professor of International Affairs at the University of Georgia. Mudde’s main work focuses on issues of extremism and democracy, notably so-called “ecoterrorism,” Euroskepticism, political extremism (of left and right), and populism.
A native of the Netherlands, he has worked at various universities in Europe and North America. Mudde’s research focuses on how liberal democracies can defend themselves against political extremism without undermining their own core values.
Co-sponsored by The Bangor Public Library, the Maine League of Women Voters, the University of Maine Departments of Sociology & Political Science, and the Scholars Strategy Network. A reception with refreshments and light snacks will be provided.
