Populism: A History of the Word in Latin America
Nicolás Prados is an associate lecturer in Latin American and Caribbean history at the Institute of the Americas, University College London. His research focuses on Cold War Latin America, seeking to understand how new meanings of democracy were forged at the intersection of revolution and repression. His first monograph, Cuba in the Caribbean Cold War (Palgrave, 2020), re-examined the Cuban Revolution (1952-1958) as part of a wider regional struggle between democracy and dictatorship. His DPhil at the University of Oxford continued this work, analysing the emergence of a regional cold war in the Caribbean between a bloc of dictatorial regimes and democratizing governments, between the 1940s and 1960s. Some of his research projects have been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and the University of Oxford’s Latin American Centre.
