Workshop: Education and the Far Right: towards an interdisciplinary research agenda
03.12.2020 - 04.12.2020
University of Edinburgh
Old College, South Bridge,
EH8 9YL Edinburgh, Schottland
With the recent resurgence of far-right populist parties and movements across Europe, liberal democracy and its educational foundations have become increasingly contested. While the far right has come to constitute an influential and enduring actor in the European political and societal debate, we still lack systematic knowledge on its representatives’ educational views, these views’ origin and development in the last decades, how they are being brought into politics and with what effect. Researchers from political science, education, history and related disciplines are welcome to lend their distinctive perspective to these questions and contribute to laying the ground for a new research agenda in this interdisciplinary field.
The workshop will be held in 2 half-day sessions at the University of Edinburgh , accompanied by a panel discussion open to a broader audience.
