New DFG-funded scientific network on the Far Right

Together with my colleagues Daniel Mullis (PRIF Frankfurt), Jan Simon Hutta (University of Bayreuth/TU Dresden) and Valentin Domann (HU Berlin), I have successfully raised funds from DFG, the German Research Foundation, for a new scientific network. Titled ‘Territorialisierungen der radikalen Rechten’ (Territorializations of the Far Right), it involves a total of 20 academics, mostly from the field of Human Geography. The network will take up its work in spring 2021 for a duration of three years. From the point of departure of a romanic-speaking conceptual tradition in particular, it aims to debate the suitability of the concept of territorialization for an analysis of right-wing practices. It will examine practices of spatial appropriation by the Far Right as well as territorializing discursive framings of far-right actors and actions.
