We currently have two confirmed keynote speakers. A third speaker will be announced soon.

  • Annette Knaut (Augsburg University) is a cultural scientist and sociologist. She is currently working on her ‘Habilitation’ at Augsburg University, Germany. In this work Annette develops a new imaginary of public spaces, called Transcultural Public Spheres, by re-reading and counter-reading common social science concepts of publics and spaces with postcolonial literature. Annette is engaged in different research networks of post- and decolonial thinking as well as discourse studies. Her research lies at the intersection of social science theory, discourse research, gender studies, as well as cultural and postcolonial studies.


  • Alister Miskimmon is Professor of International Relations at Queen’s University Belfast. His research focuses on strategic narratives and International Relations. He has published two books on these themes with Ben O’Loughlin and Laura Roselle entitled, Strategic Narratives: Communication Power and the New World Order (2013) and Forging the World: Strategic Narratives in International Relations (2017).
