Abstract by Natascha Strobl

Radicalised Conservatism The book and the lecture “Radicalised Conservatism – An Analysis” focus on a development of contemporary conservatism in political parties. This strand of conservatism is developing into a definable and thus new phenomenon. It occupies an intermediate stage between state-supporting post-war conservatism and the established, popular extreme right. It draws its dynamic from

Abstract by Prof. Dr. Kristina Stoeckl

As part of the panel-session , the talk of Kristina Stoeckl will focus on moral conservative strategies to redefine rights pertaining to the sphere of family and education. On the basis of findings about networks between Russian Orthodox and American Christian Right grassroots organizations (NGOs), she will argue that moral conservative interactions across denominations and

Abstract by Prof. Dr. Sarah Speck

Gender and family have always been important pillars in the normative ideas of radical conservatism. In recent years, gender issues have played a major role in public debate. For conservatives and the extreme right in particular, they have been of central importance. My commentary explores the reasons for this development. In order to understand why

Abstract by Eszter Kováts

In recent years sexual and reproductive health and rights and the concept of “gender” itself have become political battlegrounds all over Europe and on EU level too.

Abstract by Dr. Katharina Hajek

Although often overlooked in public discourse, gender, gender relations and sexuality play a central role in right-wing populist party politics and mobilizations. For Germany, this is particularly evident with regard to two events from recent years: on the one hand the demonstrations called ‘Demo für Alle’ (Demonstration for all) organized in several major German cities

Abstract by Judith Goetz

While topics such as sexual violence have been overused by the extreme right in recent years, many left groups neglected the same issues or reduced their analyses to exposing the extreme right rhetoric as racism. In particular, debates about ,legitimate‘ criticism of Islam or the handling of the instrumentalization of „gender politics” by the extreme

Abstract by Prof. Dr. Nancy Fraser

Our Bodies, Our Politics: Against The Ultra-Conservatives–and Their Liberal Enablers The conservative backlash against women is real and scary. But effective opposition requires a critical view of the larger political constellation that has precipitated it. In this lecture, I interpret the present anti-feminist backlash as a response to four decades of “progressive-neoliberal” hegemony–and to the

Thinking emancipation – Introduction by Prof. Dr. Rainer Forst

Social struggles for emancipation are fought not least in the space of reasons. Indeed, it is only when notions about the “nature” of people that condemn certain groups to second- or third-class status change that societies can begin to transform. Patriarchy begins to shake when the justificatory narratives that, whether religiously or otherwise based, simultaneously

Abstract by Prof. Dr. Sara Farris

The Racialisation of sexism and the sexualisation of racism In the second half of the 2000s sociologists and political scientists seeking to understand why the PVV, FN and LN began to mobilize issues of women’s rights in anti-Islam and anti-immigration campaigns resorted to theories of populism. A number of elements were noted as strikingly dissimilar
