REPRESENT will be welcoming Nathalie Brack (Université Libre de Bruxelles) to discuss 'Political Parties and Post-Truth Politics'.

This seminar will present new research that aims at understanding post-truth politics and its implications for democratic societies by looking at one central actor: political parties, which play a vital role as opinion shapers. Therefore, this project seeks to determine to what extent, and why political parties in Europe contribute to post-truth politics. It focuses on one facet of this phenomenon: conspiracy discourse.

Nathalie Brack is Associate Professor in Political Science at the Université libre de Bruxelles and Visiting Professor at the College of Europe. She recently authored Opposing Europe in the European Parliament. Rebels and Radicals in the Chamber (Palgrave, 2018) and is co-editor of Sovereignty in Conflict: Political, Constitutional and Economic Dilemmas in the EU (Palgrave, forthcoming).

Speaker: Nathalie Brack (Universite Libre de Bruxelles)

Seminar Convenor and Discussant: Dr William Daniel 

All welcome. This seminar will be held as a hybrid event. Please indicate in your registration whether you wish to take part via our online platform or in person. The in-person event will take place in Monica Partridge E04 on the University Park Campus at the University of Nottingham.
