CFP: Political masculinities and populism
Call for papers: Interdisciplinary Conference at the University of Landau (Germany), 1st to 3rd December 2017
This conference is the latest in a series dedicated toward the topic of political masculinities having first taken place in 2012. It focusses on the theme of “Political Masculinities and Populism”. We anticipate that the series will continue with a conference hosted by the University of Greenwich, London, in 2018.
The conference aims to encourage and develop diverse understanding concerning the relationship between the concepts of political masculinities and populism. In the current political and social climate where media debates are often heated and analysis is in danger of taking second place to (political) opinion, we hope to provide an arena in which to consider the gendered functioning of populist politics and politicians – both past and present – and thereby contribute toward understanding the rise of populism globally in the 21st century.
