Backlash Against “Others”
AbstractRight wing populist movements are challenging established political parties and institutions, including higher education. The discourse and platforms of these movements are a nationalistic backlash against elites and “others” that are antithetical to all that universities at their best stand for. But universities would do well to refocus on class-based inequities that also underlie this shift, in ways that rebalance the global and local.
