113 Rethinking Gender and the Radical Right

Thursday, July 13, 2017: 9:00 AM-10:45 AM
Court/Senate (University of Glasgow)
This proposed panel consists of a set of papers that are part of a forthcoming special issue of the journal Gender and Education in 2017. The special issue is titled: Rethinking Gender and the Radical Right: Contemporary Challenges and Educational Implications.  The authors’ recent research on varied dimensions of gender and the radical right add much to our collective understanding, both by adding geographic diversity from little-known cases such as Latvia and by investigating new phenomena (such as populist parties’ new framing of the far right agenda as protecting LGBTQ rights), among others.  Five of the forthcoming papers in the special issue will be featured in this panel, as described in individual abstracts below.
