How Does Populist Communication Succeed?

Ferruh Yilmaz (Tulane University, USA)


Date: Thursday, 14.02.2019

Time: 17.00-19.00
Place: University of Westminster, 309 Regent Street, W1B 2HW
Room: G03 Fyvie Hall


Registration: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/how-does-populist-communication-succeed-tickets-54657521117


Focusing on the rhetoric of the populist right in Denmark, Ferruh Yilmaz will discuss how elite and media responses can end up confirming the logic of populist rhetoric. The main point is that the media and elite responses, even in their negative coverage (1) respond to crisis provoked by the far-right by accepting their basic premises (i.e. discussing whether immigrants’ cultural practices are a danger to social and national cohesion; (2) by doing so, use the same terms, categories and argumentative premises; (3) contribute to their provocation of crisis and moral panics; (4) and thus open up channels of discourse for the far-right populists who become the main protagonists of the crisis and render them part of the mainstream discourse.
