Keynote presentation - Michael Minkenberg
Professor of Comparative Politics at Europa-Universität Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany. From 2007-10 he held the Max Weber Chair for German and European Studies at NYU. He has received his M.A. from Georgetown University in 1984 and his Ph.D. from the University of Heidelberg in 1989. Since then, he has taught comparative politics at the universities of Göttingen and Heidelberg, at Cornell University and Columbia University. Minkenberg’s research interests include the radical right in liberal democracies, the relationship between religion and politics in Western societies, and, more recently, politics and architecture. He has published widely on these topics and his articles have appeared in various peer reviewed journals such as Comparative Politics, West European Politics, the European Journal of Political Research, Comparative Political Studies, the International Political Science Review, and the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies. His current book publications include Power and Architecture. The Construction of Capitals and the Politics of Space (editor, 2014); In the Tracks of Breivik. Far Right Networks in Northern and Eastern Europe (co-editor with Mats Deland and Christin Mays, 2014); and Transforming the Transformation? The East European Radical Right in the Political Process (editor, due to appear in March 2015).
