will give a talk on

Contextualising far right wing movements and gendered mobilization in Hungary

Tue. 10 April 2012

1.30-3pm room M-225 (opposite library entrance)

She will focus on a so far painfully neglected phenomenon: the gender appeal of the extreme right for women. She is not using the traditional political science method of demand (analyzing crisis of welfare state, xenophobia, anti-modernization, anti-establishment attitude) or supply analysis (analyzing relationship between party preferences, social-demographic characteristics and attitudes). Instead, she will contribute to a new field of analyzing the extreme right in Hungary by listing possible causes of why the extreme right is popular among women. She is claiming that anti modernist political movements in Hungary as well as in other parts of Europe are using a rhetoric of normative motherhood in order to create a space for critiquing equal opportunity policy measures applied by the EU.
