Professor Marcia Pally and Professor Carol Gilligan"Why does patriarchy exist? Why is populism persuasive?"

Professor Marcia Pally and
Professor Carol Gilligan

Starts at: 5pm
Location: United Colleges, School V

Populism fuelled the Brexit vote and also Trump's election, but why is populism persuasive? Carol Gilligan and Marcia Pally will join their questions about populism and patriarchy to ask: is populism persuasive in part because patriarchy persists? Both, say Gilligan and Pally, are fuelled by loss and in this talk they will explore how a psychology of loss plays into the politics of our time.

Professor Pally teaches at New York University, at Fordham University, and is a regular guest professor at the theology faculty of Humboldt University, Berlin. Her most recent books are Commonwealth and Covenant: Economics, Politics, and Theologies of Relationality (2016) and The New Evangelicals: Expanding the Vision of the Common Good (2011).

Professor Gilligan is a professor at New York University and has been a visiting professor at the University of Cambridge. Her 1982 book In a Different Voice has been cited 44,000 times. She teaches and lectures widely in developmental psychology and gender studies.
