Coming Up: BAA Conference 2021: Rethinking Solidarity

 

This year's International BAA Conference will take place online from July 8 to July 9, 2021.

 

The conference expands the existing research on solidarity from theoretical vantage points such as affect studies and ecocriticism as it brings together scholars from the social sciences and from literary and cultural studies. It seeks to contribute to a nuanced theoretical understanding of solidarity and its genealogies and to discuss how solidarity can be imagined, conceptualized, and practiced within and beyond national settings.

 

Keynote speakers

July 8, 7 p.m.: Pippa Norris (Harvard University): "The Two Faces of Trust (aka the Cautionary Fable of the Frog and the Scorpion)"

July 9, 7 p.m.: Aleida Assmann (University of Konstanz): "Repairing the Past: Divided Narratives and National Solidarity"
