Research topic

Normative orders in crisis: Cultural codes in Brexit and the 2016 US presidential election

Brief description of research topic

Recently, western democracies have been wracked by unanticipated swells of populism, ethno-nationalism, and isolationism, all of which are greatly unsettling the neoliberal, globalist, and multicultural trajectories many assumed were durable and determined. The shock produced by events like Brexit, Trump’s victory, le Pen’s showing in the French vote, and far right gains in Germany, indicate that taken for granted cultural assumptions are not only being called into question but upended. Foundational cultural elements that control, anchor, and organize social orders are in crisis, and are being challenged in severe ways. In this research project, I am examining the scope and intensity of these conditions of cultural crisis.
