For this DIGSSCORE lunch seminar we are visited by Teresa Völker, PhD Candidate at Berlin Social Science Center, WZB.

The presentation gives a snapshot of her current research on the influence of the far right on political contestation in Germany, examining how and under what conditions far-right actors, ideas and events shaped public debates since the 1990s. The empirical analyses shed light on the dynamics in public debates combining a long-term perspective with in-depth analyses of critical junctures. She uses a novel data sets and draws on a multi-method approach, including automated text analysis, content analysis and network analysis, to analyse the continuity of the far right in public debates and the effect of right-wing and Islamist terrorist attacks.
