« back to classes page
What explains the recent rise of so many political strongmen such as Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Narendra Modi, Xi Jinping, Kim Jung Un, Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Rodrigo Duterte?  How did hyperbolic, threatening, and defensive rhetoric become the new norm in world leaders’ public discourse?  This class will explore the emerging image and apparent acceptance of the strongman as modern day politician and examine what we may expect from this new breed of statesman.
