Ruth Ben-Ghiat
Professor of History and Italian Studies
New York University

From Mussolini to the present, authoritarian leaders have used propaganda and personality cults to bind people to them and present themselves as competent and infallible. Based on research for her new book Strongmen: Mussolini to the Present (Norton, 2020), Ben-Ghiat will discuss what has changed and what has stayed the same over a century of illiberal rule. 

Presented with cosponsorship by the Nanovic Institute for European Studies and the Center for Italian Studies
