Helsinki conference on Emotions, Populism and Polarisation
We have the pleasure of inviting you to the Second Helsinki Conference on Emotions, Populism and Polarisation, at the University of Helsinki, Finland, on 6-8 May 2021. The first call for papers is under way and closes 15 September 2020. Our keynote speakers for 2021 are Bice Maiguashca (University of Exeter) and Silvio Waisbord (George Washington University).
After the success of our first HEPP conference on "Emotions, Populism, and Polarised Politics, Media, and Culture" in August 2019, we decided to continue with conferences in May 2021 and August 2022. The aim of this series of conferences is to bring together a variety of international researchers at all career stages dealing with a broad range of topics that employ a post-structuralist and/or post-foundational approach to critical inquiry. The conferences seek to address different issues from both theoretical and empirical perspectives, especially those exploring the intersection of different positionalities and challenging bounded national contexts.
