Hybris in the Face of Uncertainty: Five Thousand Years of Eurasian Selves and Others in Monuments

Politics of uncertainties Annual doctoral conference 6-8 april
Friday, April 8, 2022, 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

Join us in the last keynote, co-hosted with the Global Politics and Practice research group, of the 17th Annual Doctoral Conference: Politics of Uncertainties. 

After a full-online 16th edition of the ADC, this year we return onsite, at our Vienna campus in Quellenstraße 51! Still, we decided to guarantee the hybrid mode for the whole conference, so that presenters, discussants, as well as the audience, can join via Zoom. Register here by April 4 to attend.

This year the conference will take place between 6-8 April in a hybrid format, consisting of 22 panels and hosting 5 keynote speeches. Our panels are organised around a wide array of research areas: authoritarianism; conflict and cooperation; deliberative democracy; democratisation; global governance; heterodox approaches in IR and policy studies; higher education policy; media and digitalisation; memory politics; peace and security studies; political discourse and political behaviour; political economy; political theory; postcolonial theories; research methods; refugees and migration.

Bio / Iver B. Neumann is a professor at University of Oslo and the director of Fridtjof Nansen Institute: My overarching research interest is in how polities relate to one another, in pre-history, in history, in imagined worlds, and in principle. I usually draw on Continental social theory to analyse this, and use empirical examples from Russian foreign policy, Norwegian foreign policy and, increasingly, from archaeology.
