Gillian Hart is Distinguished Professor in the Humanities Graduate Centre at the University of the Witwatersrand, and Professor of the Graduate School in Geography at the University of California, Berkeley.  She is currently working on a set of essays for a book on resurgent nationalisms and populisms in South Africa, India, and the United States since the end of the Cold War.  The most recent essay, entitled “Why Did it Take So Long?  Trumpism through Southern Lenses”, suggests how analyses of South Africa and India can shed new light on Trumpism in ways that speak to urgent political debates around class, race, gender, and other dimensions of difference.  Her prior books include Power, Labor, and Livelihood: Processes of Change in Rural Java (1986); Agrarian Transformations: Local Processes and the State in Southeast Asia (1989); Disabling Globalization: Places of Power in Post-Apartheid South Africa (2002); Gramsci: Space, Nature, Politics (2013); and Rethinking the South African Crisis: Nationalism, Populism, Hegemony (2014).
