Invitation to a Dual Event: Book seminar and emerita lecture for and by Birte Siim

After working for more than 40 years at Aalborg University, Birte Siim has decided to retire from her position. This will be marked by a dual event.

Time

31.08.2018 kl. 09.30 - 31.08.2018 kl. 17.00

Description

I wish to use this occasion to thank my Danish and international colleagues for their friendship and inspiration. In the morning, colleagues will discuss results from the European RAGE project: Hate speech and populist othering, which examined ’populist’ political discourse in Europe. Results have been published in four books. Most recently: B. Siim, A. Krasteva and A. Saarinen (Eds.); Citizens’ Activism and Solidarity Movements: Contending with Populism (2018). In the afternoon, I will give a lecture, which will be followed by a reception.
