imPACT: Diálogos

How did Jair Bolsonaro rise to power in 2018? What are the movements that comprise the new Brazilian right? What is the role of social media in political articulation? How relevant conspiracy theories are? What is ‘digital populism’ and how could it be linked to the Brazilian authoritarian tradition? What can the rise of evangelical Christianity tell us about the country’s conservative turn? How have the armed forces influenced Brazil’s political scenario in recent history? What is the role of conservative ideologues, such as Olavo de Carvalho, in the current administration?

imPACT: Diálogos is a series of seven episodes on contemporary Brazilian politics and society. Structured around an interview format, each episode invites an expert to break down a complex political scenario and offer rich and accessible analyses to a broad English-speaking audience.

imPACT: Diálogos is an original production that is part of the ERC-funded PACT: Populism and Conspiracy Theory project at the University of Tübingen, Germany. It is written, produced, and hosted by PACT postdoctoral researcher, Katerina Hatzikidi. Sound design and mixing: Ignacio Albornoz Fariña Cover image: Yul Koh Special thanks to: Steffi da Silva, Julius Haferkorn, Gabriele Höffner, Michael Butter.
