Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes

What is it in the world today that is making populist and authoritarian approaches to government more attractive than democracy?

This is one of the core questions at the heart of an 18 month global humanities institute project funded by the Consortium of Humanities and Centres institutes and the A.W. Mellon Foundation. The GHI brings together early career researchers and a consortium of humanities scholars spanning four continents to explore crises of democracy through the lens of cultural trauma. It is led by the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute in partnership with the Center for the Study of Ethnicity, Citizenship and Migration at the University of Zagreb (Croatia), the Institute of Advanced Studies at the University of São Paolo (Brazil), the Heyman Center for the Humanities at Columbia University (US) and Jawaharlal Nehru University (India).
