Symposium: Mobilizing Affect: Populism and the Future of Democratic Populism in Spain

Keynote Speaker: Prof. Chantal Mouffe (University of Westminster)

This symposium confronts Spain’s political past, present and future. Bringing together a group of distinguished scholars working in Britain, Spain and the United States, the conference will centre on the eruption of populist mobilizations from 2011 to the present—both in Spain and across the globe—by tarrying with expressions of dissent and indignation and the emergence of new political parties such as Podemos and Ciudadanos.
