    We will read the book assigned by Princeton’s President Eisgruber to all incoming freshmen; and then meet over drinks and snacks to watch video of the discussion on campus with the author, followed by our own discussion of the book.

     

    The Princeton Pre-read selection for the Class of 2021 is What Is Populism? by Jan-Werner Müller, a Princeton Professor of Politics. It offers a careful and comprehensive investigation of a concept--populism--used to describe a diverse array of political movements around the world. Released in 2016 before the US election and the Brexit vote, it is a timely review of a hot topic. Professor Müller joined Pres Eisgruber, several faculty members, and members of the Class of 2021 for a spirited discussion of the book. An author Q&A is on the Princeton website, here:

    https://www.princeton.edu/news/2016/10/25/qa-muller-populism-todays-world?section=topstories


    The book is available now on Amazon UK, in paperback and Kindle editions.

     

    The Pre-read program, initiated by President Eisgruber in 2013, introduces incoming freshmen to Princeton’s intellectual life. Pres Eisgruber selects and sends a book to incoming freshmen to read prior to their arrival on campus. Freshmen then discuss the book and its concepts with student leaders during Orientation and with Pres Eisgruber in the residential colleges and elsewhere during the academic year.

    “Global History Lab ” virtual full-semester seminar with

    Princeton Professor Jeremy Adelman




    Global History Lab covers the full span of world history from 1300 to the present, in every corner of the globe. Major themes include the history of science and health, trade and war, migration, and the changing human environment. PAUK has an extraordinary opportunity to take this full Princeton course with Professor Jeremy Adelman, former Chair of the History Department and a world leader in the field.

     

    PAUK will have 3 sessions in central London (with audiolink for those outside London), at which Prof Adelman himself will join us from Princeton via live video, answering our questions on his lectures. We will each view the lectures at our convenience, on a private YouTube page; it is a 12-week course, with 24 lectures each in several short segments, which we will spread over 4 months. The videos are here, if you would like to get a taste or get started:https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZ2JcWIzxHbrU5Qo7nssExJRYdNqYEiIH. A full syllabus will be provided on registration.

     

    PAUK received the 2017 Innovation Award from the Princeton Alumni Council, for our new series of “Virtual Full-Semester Seminars with Princeton professors, combining taped and live video”. This program is a real revolution in alumni education. Global History Lab is delivered on campus, and over the online learning platform EdX to students from 125 countries; we will have our own private course. Join us on this intellectual journey through time and around the world.
