Presented by Gabriele Dietze (Berlin, GER) und Julia Roth (Bielefeld, GER), Birgit Sauer (Wien, AUT)

While research in right-wing populism has recently been blossoming, a systematic study of the intersection of right-wing populism and gender is still missing, even though gender issues are ubiquitous in discourses of the radical right ranging from »ethnosexism« against immigrants, to »anti-genderism«.

This volume shows that the intersectionality of gender, race and class is constitutional for radical right discourse. From different European perspectives, the contributions investigate the ways in which gender is used as a meta-language, strategic tool and »affective bridge« for ordering and hierarchizing political objectives in the discourse of the diverse actors of the »right-wing complex.«

On the eve of the mid-term conference "Framing Global Contestations of Women's and Gender Rights "of the ZiF research group Global Contestations of Women's and Gender Rights, the editors Gabriele Dietze (Berlin) and Julia Roth (Bielefeld) will present their book together with author Birgit Sauer (Vienna) "Right-Wing Populism and Gender. European Perspectives and Beyond", which was published last year by Transcript Verlag in Bielefeld: https://www.transcript-verlag.de/978-3-8376-4980-2/right-wing-populism-and-gender/
