This project focuses on defining populism to include countries beyond the West to show connections between populist characteristics and human rights violations. After gathering research on four different countries and their histories of human rights violations, the author used digital tools such as TimelineJS and StoryMapJS to present findings on WordPress. The website’s audience has the ability to browse countries examined in the study and learn about how governments struggling with large-scale human rights violations tend to share multiple characteristics of populism. This project hopes to bring awareness to countries rarely discussed in the news suffering from oftentimes dangerous government leadership.


Final project for the 2019 Digital Scholarship Summer Fellowship at Musselman Library, Gettysburg College.
