Think Lab & Panel Discussion on the Practice and Language of Political Polarization, New York City, Nov 14-18, 2016
BIGSSS and the Columbia’s Journalism School, the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gert Bucerius, the German Center for Research and Innovation, and the German Research Foundation (DFG) jointly organize a think lab and panel discussion on “Booming Populism – On the Language and Practice of Political Polarization” in New York City, Nov 14-18, 2016!
By bringing together social scientists, journalists and communication experts with diverse areas of expertise, the event aims at a multi-layered analysis of the current turmoil in the American and European political landscapes. In a novel event format, renowned experts in the field of political theory, populism and media communication are challenged by inputs developed in an interdisciplinary think lab of young researchers.
“Booming populism” was inspired by the mission goals of the German Center for Research and Innovation to both promote excellent German research to a wider US audience and to enhance transatlantic academic cooperation.
The think lab and panel discussion became possible through the generous support of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), the University of Bremen and the Stiftung Bremer Wertpapierbörse.
