‘The Rise of Lifestyle Activism’ Wednesday 29 April 2017

Dr Nikos Sotirakopoulos (Lecturer in Sociology, Loughborough University)

Nikos will speak about his 2016 book, The Rise of Lifestyle Activism. He will also speak about how his work has evolved to focus on how a questioning of the ideas of modernity and the enlightenment are now central in the narrative of the 'alt-right' and of parts of the populist right. In addition, he will discuss the challenges of doing ethnography among people with whom you have strong ideological disagreements.
