1st House Lecture: The resurgence of nationalism

By David Miller, Nuffield College, Oxford

1 December 2020, 17:00 GMT
45-minute virtual lecture followed by Q&A


Inspired by Harbour House, our HQ in the UK, which provides both a literal and metaphorical ‘home’ for the ECPR community, we developed The House Lectures, launching this December to round off our 50th Anniversary celebrations.

In line with ECPR's overarching mission, The House Lectures aim to help break down barriers in European political science, to provide a platform for discourse and to reach out beyond academe and shine a light on the work of our discipline.

Our first two lectures, held virtually, will consider threats to democracy and will be delivered by David Miller, winner of the ECPR’s Lifetime Achievement Award 2020 (December) and Veronica Anghel, recipient of our inaugural Rising Star Award (February).

Following these first lectures, this exciting venture will present a line-up of virtual talks that seek to open doors to some of the most pressing issues and challenges today from a broad range of perspectives.

The House Lectures in brief

  • Insightful lectures on the hottest topics in political science and beyond
  • Each followed by an extended Q&A sessions
  • Two instalments lined up, with more to follow
  • Open to all, ECPR members and non-members
  • The inaugural lecture is completely FREE to attend
