Keynote Speaker: Craig Calhoun



Craig Calhoun will deliver the keynote address for the 25th International Conference of Europeanists in Chicago titled: "Populism, Nationalism, and the Fate of Democracy."

Craig Calhoun
is President of the Los Angeles-based Berggruen Institute, which works globally to advance knowledge of great transformations shaping the human future. These range from AI and gene-editing to renewed nationalism and weakened international cooperation and indeed the possible transformation of capitalism. Calhoun was previously Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science, where he remains Centennial Professor and before that President of the New York-based Social Science Research Council (SSRC). He was also University Professor of Social Sciences and Director of the Institute for Public Knowledge at NYU. His books have been translated into 18 languages and include Does Capitalism Have a Future? (2013), The Roots of Radicalism (2012), and Nations Matter (2007), which predicted rising nationalist and populist challenges to cosmopolitanism grounded in a highly unequal global economy.
