Panel explores rise of nationalism across the globe

Cornell faculty and alumni took part in a wide-ranging discussion focused on nationalism around the world during a March 26 New York City event featuring NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik ’91, the Zubrow Distinguished Visiting Journalist in the College of Arts & Sciences.

David Folkenflik '91, spoke with Cornell faculty members Mabel Berezin, center, and Gustavo A. Flores-Macías, right, during a March 26 event in New York City.

The event, held at Cornell’s ILR Conference Center on Lexington Avenue, featured Mabel Berezin, the Distinguished Professor of Arts & Sciences in Sociology (A&S) and director of the Institute for European Studies; and Gustavo A. Flores-Macías, professor of government (A&S) and the acting associate dean of academic affairs in the Brooks School of Public Policy. The panel was organized by the College of Arts & Sciences and the Northeast Corridor Team of Cornell’s Alumni Affairs and Development office.

Berezin’s work focuses on democratic cohesion and solidarity in Europe, while Flores-Macías studies political and economic development in Latin America, so their remarks centered on those global regions. Folkenflik frequently acknowledged echoes between these movements and the rise of nationalism in the U.S.
