Talk­ing Cul­tures. Anthro­pol­o­gy of the Far Right and its Mul­ti­ple Publics


Time: 18:15

Loca­tion: Rotunde, Uni­ver­si­ty of Bre­men and on zoom

Addi­tion­al event info: Agniesz­ka Pasieka (Uni­ver­sität Bayreuth)

In her talk, Agniesz­ka Pasieka aims to reflect on the mul­ti­ple publics of anthro­po­log­i­cal schol­ar­ship, and more specif­i­cal­ly: on the (poten­tial) impact of the anthro­pol­o­gy of the far right on var­i­ous schol­ar­ly and non-schol­ar­ly audi­ences. In so doing, her talk engages with some key con­cepts – such as “cul­ture,” “diver­si­ty,” and “iden­ti­ty” – that are cen­tral to anthro­po­log­i­cal schol­ar­ship, but which in recent decades have moved beyond the realm of aca­d­e­m­ic debates to mark the ter­rain of polit­i­cal bat­tles. In engag­ing with these cat­e­gories, she sketch­es the moral-polit­i­cal imag­i­nary of con­tem­po­rary far-right activists and high­lights a trou­ble­some rela­tion­ship between far-right views and schol­ar­ly knowledge.
