The seminar was organized by CISPEA and the Department of Political and social sciences of the University of Bologna, with the financial support of the US Embassy in Rome. The goal of the initiative was to deepen a conversation on the fragmentation and the collapse of all master narratives, which are particularly crucial in the new, uncertain political contexts affecting both the transatlantic and global spaces. Trump’s election in the United States, the rise of new populisms in Italy and Europe, Brexit, the crisis of international liberal order are some of the symptoms of the ‘fracture’ we would like to explore, by stimulating a discussion on this category from different methodological perspectives, involving American, European and Italian scholars.
Speakers: Daniel T. Rodgers (Princeton University); Michael Freeden (Oxford University and SOAS – London); Sergio Fabbrini (LUISS Rome); Federico Romero (European University Institute Florence); Andi Shehu (European University Institute Florence).
