Current Populism in Europe: Culture, History, Identity

Prague, Czech Republic

21-22 May 2018

call for papers open

The conference is dedicated to the claim to represent the "will of the people", the rejection of "elites", the concept of "a glorious past", nationalist narratives, and a certain understanding of identity and culture promulgated by populist parties, leaders and movements across Europe. In order to fully understand the goals and successes of these actors in European politics, it is essential to look at the respective historical context in which they have emerged and to analyse their politics of history and culture. Within the scope of the 4th Prague Populism Conference, the organisers encourage applicants to submit papers on the following issues:

 Populism in historical and cultural perspective

The use of historical and nationalist narratives in populist communication

Comparative studies of current populist parties and movements in Europe

Populism and the politics of identity

Applicants are invited to submit abstracts of up to 300 words and short CVs to populism@fsv.cuni.cz by 31 January 2018.
