Subaltern political knowledges, 18th – 20th centuries

Date: 18 - 20 October 2017

Venue: Felixarchief - Reception room and auditorium - Oude Leeuwenrui 29 - 2000 Antwerpen

Organization / co-organization: Power in History-Centre for Political History - University of Antwerp

Short description: International conference

The conference ‘Subaltern political knowledges’ asks a question that should precede all discussion of politicization, democratization and nationalization of the masses: what did people actually know about politics? In our quest for an answer, we will primarily focus on ‘subaltern’ groups in society, i.e. on people that neither occupied a position of formal or informal power in society nor were able to make their voice heard in public debates.
