The Politics of Replacement Demographic Fears, Conspiracy Theories, and Race Wars

Deadline: May 31st, 2020

Discourses and conspiracies about national populations under threat of being overtaken or even wiped out by those considered as ‘alien’ to the nation body are on the rise, yet again. While we began investigating fears of ‘replacement’ in relation to Europe’s ‘Muslim Question’ today, we recognize replacement discourse as multiple and versatile, and unfolding in different contexts, and having different historical genealogies. We invite submissions that interrogate the different ways in which the discourse of replacement has been formulated and mobilized. Contributions might explore some of the following issues, but are not limited to them.
