'Flirting with Fantasies: Will Populist Politics Turn Fantasies into Violent Realities?'
Over the course of Hilary Term and Trinity Term 2017, the Department of Politics and International Relations will convene a new seminar series on Ideas and Political Violence, with six planned seminars each term held on Thursdays at 4pm, in Lecture Room 6 at New College. We hope that participants and guest speakers may then continue the discussions over drinks at the Turf Tavern.
We have an exciting line-up of speakers for Hilary Term and would like to welcome interested attendees from across the university. The relationship between ideas and political violence is a key interdisciplinary interest of modern academia, and this seminar series will seek to capitalise on the expanding wave of new scholarship, bringing this into the DPIR’s research community and adding momentum to it by providing a forum for discussion between academic staff, graduate students, and visiting speakers on cutting-edge research work.
