Patrick Bass, professor of history at Morningside College, will give a lecture on resurgent nationalism at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, in Weikert Auditorium in Buhler Rohlfs Hall, 1701 Morningside Ave.
The lecture, “Background to Resurgent Nationalism: Populism and Globalization since 1914,” is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Col. Bud Day Center for Civic Engagement in collaboration with the Morningside College History Department.
“Politics in 2016, both in the U. S. and abroad, have witnessed a resurgence of populist nationalism,” said Bass. “This trend is not new. The lecture will trace the ebb and flow of globalization and populist nationalism in the world and provide an opportunity to analyze international politics and the election of 2016 in a new way.”
Bass has taught at Morningside since 1992. He teaches European and American history, and studies U.S. foreign relations. He has a doctorate from Claremont Graduate School in Claremont, Calif.
