#Lecture Series: New Faces of Authoritarianism in the Global South

“New Faces of Authoritarianism in the Global South” is the online lecture series by IRGAC fellows during the summer semester of 2022 starting on April 21. The series is coordinated by Ülker Sözen and will be moderated by Ülker Sözen and Gustavo Robles. It is open to BA and MA students from political and social science disciplines and humanities, as well as Ph.D. candidates, researchers, and activists who focus on authoritarianism and counter-politics in the Global South.

The series will offer multidisciplinary perspectives on authoritarian regimes in the Global South along with forms of political and economic repression prompted by neoliberalism, emancipatory social movements, and counter-strategies. The lectures are based on individual projects developed by the members of the IRGAC and the group’s analytical and methodological ventures on the study of authoritarianism. They will cover a wide range of topics including state violence, biopolitical reproduction of capitalism, sexual dissidence and feminist struggles, the entanglement of authoritarianism with digital technologies, artistic practices, peasant and indigenous movements, the human rights regime, environmental crisis, and urban transformation.
