- Thesis title: "Left Populism, Charismatic Leadership and Missionary Politics: The Presidency of Andrés Manuel López Obrador"
- Supervisor: Dr Jonathan Dean, Dr Rebecca Jarman
With a background in both Social and Political Theory (SPT) and Iberian and Latin American Cultural Studies (ILACS), I have chosen to combine these two areas of academic interest through my research at the University of Leeds, which is co-supervised by the School of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) and the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies (SLCS).
I am particularly interested in the concepts of charismatic leadership (Weber) and the re-enchantment of politics (Zúquete) proposed by contemporary left populism. My research focuses on the discursive construction of what I consider to be the “missionary politics” of Mexico’s 65th President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
