Conference |
Since the 1980s, movements deemed populist have emerged across Europe and in the United States. The French National Front, to take one important example, won municipal elections as early as 1983. Populism thus has a history — and, perhaps a future as well. In recent years, a growing number of populist movements have either surfaced or broadened their base, claiming to represent the people, indigenous culture, and national sovereignty against cosmopolitan elites, the establishment, and immigrants. In France, having until now held off the victory of the National Front’s presidential candidates, the electoral glass ceiling may soon crack. Held two weeks before the first round of French 2017 presidential elections (April 23), this conference will take stock of the current ‘populist moment’—in France and elsewhere—as a historical phenomenon and an object of study. Established and emerging scholars from Europe and the U.S. will come together — along with journalists — to address questions of method and analysis in comparative perspective.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Jazze Belle is a Harlem-based group headed by producer/instrumentalist Jett Carter and singer/songwriter Taylor Simone. With influences ranging from Flying Lotus to Jill Scott, and of course, Outkast, the two share a sound influenced by jazzy vocals, honest lyrics, and edgy hip-hop production. In the words of music publication No Smoking Media, their work is "a cool sort of future-funk/neo-soul/I’m-sick-of-making-up-genres category that is all of them and none of them at once." All of their influences can be heard in their first releases Jagged Edge,SCW, and Lantern. They released their debut project Go To Bed Standing Up on February 25. Also performing: Braxton Cook is one of this generation’s emerging voices on the alto saxophone. He is also a talented vocalist and songwriter whose sound blends soul, R&B, and jazz. A graduate of Juilliard, Cook has toured with Grammy Award–nominated trumpeter Christian Scott, The New Century Jazz Quintet, and Tomohiro Miro Quartet, among others. His 2014 EP Sketch and 2015 album Braxton Cook Meets Butcher Brown brought him to festivals and venues across the country, and his newly formed band The N.E.W. will be touring nationally this year to support the release of his upcoming album, Somewhere in Between.
