In this history masterclass series, three historians – Paul Taillon, Malcolm Campbell, and Linda Bryder – come together from different specialist areas in the history discipline to address the role of populism as a historical force.

In this series, you will hear about populism in American, Australian and New Zealand history.

In this episode, Malcolm Campbell looks at the history of populism in Australia and poses the question of whether Australia has a history of populism.
