Younes Saramifar (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Migration and Diversity Research Centre) and Christine Unrau (Centre for Global Cooperation Research) have received an Aurora Mini-Grant for their project Global pasts, cultural heritage and the rise of populist storytelling.
It brings together two strands of research which have largely been separated from each other: Memory studies with its focus on materiality, public space and cultural heritage and research on the emotional appeal of populist storytelling. At the same time, it combines a regional focus on Europe and the Americas with a focus on political actors in the Middle East. The project will feature a series of online lectures and a summer school to be held in Amsterdam in July 2023.
Next event: Online lecture by Dr Kusha Sefat on March 14th, 4.00 pm.
