|Enver Hoxha: Biography of a Balkan Tyrant||Seminars and Colloquia||Nikolai AntoniadisRobert AustinMisha Glenny||
In this Fellows Colloquium, Robert C. Austin will present his research on Albania’s Enver Hoxha (1908-1985), who is likely the least understood of the twentieth century’s communist dictators that took power in the aftermath of the Second World War in Europe. Hoxha was also one of the most violent, ruthless, and repressive communist leaders. Albanians could easily claim that they endured the worst type of communist rule: Hoxha’s form of (violent) communism was without parallel in Europe.

|Move Over, Mona Lisa. Move Over, Jane Eyre: Making the World’s Universities, Museums, and Libraries More Welcoming to Everyone||Lecture||Peggy LevittAyşe Çağlar||I want to attend at the IWM Library||
Across the world, calls for greater equity in the halls of academia, museum galleries, and libraries are loud and clear. If everyone agrees that business as usual is no longer acceptable, why is progress so slow? In this presentation, Peggy Levitt argues that the simple answer is that the lack of diversity in intellectual and cultural institutions is the product of a supply chain of exclusions that leave out a broader set of experiences at every turn.
|Following Anti-Gender Movements in Europe: What’s Next?||Seminars and Colloquia||Mieke VerlooTatev Hovhannisyan||
Over the past 20 years, anti-democratic transnational movements against women’s rights and gender equality have grown in strength across Europe. In this talk, Tatev Hovhannisyan will present a number of openDemocracy’s investigations, according to which the backlash in Europe is well-organized and extensively funded by transnational actors, including US Christian conservatives.
