Logo for Catedra libre Ernesto Laclau, ArgentinaUnder the project “Theorising Transnational Populist Politics” carried out by Centre for Applied Philosophy, Politics and Ethics, College of Arts and Humanities of the University of Brighton, Great Britain and the Cátedra Libre Ernesto Laclau of the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina the international workshop W“Populist Politics and Neoliberal Reaction” was held in Buenos Aires in December 2016. Its aim was to gather different colleagues, who develop their academic work within the Post-Marxist Field, in an interdisciplinary space of debate.

This three-day conference hosted by the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, in conjunction with CAPPE, University of Brighton, and the Cátedra libre Ernesto Laclau examined contemporary trends in transnational populist politics and their resonance in the contemporary neoliberal conjuncture.

The conference consider populist politics as much a reaction to this neoliberal conjuncture, and the reactions to transnational politics that seek to undermine the galvanisation of a ‘people’ against neoliberal and conservative hegemony.

This event was part of a British Academy funded project which aimed to secure a long-term partnership between Argentinian and UK scholars and research centres concerned with the politics, economics and ideology of populist movements of the left in Latin America and Europe. It is jointly hosted by the University of Buenos Aires and the University of Brighton.
