Seminar Six

Dark Futures? Media and Movements in the Age of Post-Truth Politics


When the SoME seminar series started at the beginning of 2015 little did we know that the international political context would change so dramatically, that we would witness a new wave of right-wing populism in Europe and the U.S. coupled with the rise of ‘post-truth’ politics. In this last seminar of the series we want to focus on the challenges faced by progressive social movements and media activists in the age of ‘post-truth’ politics, and seek a critical and political response against the rise of right wing populism and xenophobia in Europe and the U.S.
