Centre for Social Studies
Cristiano Gianolla, Amit Singh, Boaventura de Sousa Santos

The seminar discusses the role of far-right politics, nationalisms and populisms in contemporary societies. The presentations will engage in reflections about theoretical and methodological challenges in relation to the study of the relationship between state and people, institutions and social identities, with a strong emphasis on the entanglement of rational and emotional features within political narratives. The debate will also explore the extent to which far-right, nationalist and populist politics constitute threats to democracy with a focus on the Indian context.   

Presentations: Cristiano Gianolla and Amit Singh | Discussant: Boaventura de Sousa Santos
