Declan Da Barp
My name is Declan Da Barp and I am from Toronto. I am a journalism and history major finishing my final semester before I graduate in January. Both the journalism and history programs have allowed me to explore my interests in the intersection between sports, populism, and authoritarianism. As a huge soccer fan, I see the sport being a useful lens to understand society. I see this class aiding in my understanding of populist movements which are becoming more prominent across the western world. I look forward to exploring a lot of these ideas with all of you.
When not watching soccer, I enjoy reading, playing sports, and cooking.
