Confirmed Speakers

lilie chouliaraki.jpg

Lilie Chouliaraki is Professor of Media and Communications at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Her work focuses on the ethical and political complexities of mediating vulnerability with particular emphasis on three domains in which vulnerability appears as a problem of communication: humanitarian and human rights advocacy; war & conflict reporting and migration news. She is the author of several books, including the award-winning volume "The Ironic Spectator. Solidarity in the age of post-humanitarianism" (Polity, 2013). Her most recent work is on the cultural politics of victimhood in western societies (Wronged: The Weaponization of Victimhood) and her keynote will draw on the book's argument to address the following questions: Why is being a victim such a potent identity today? Who claims to be a victim, and why? Who benefits and who loses from the struggles over victimhood in public culture?
