Representation, legitimacy and the ‘citizen standpoint’
Michael Saward (University of Warwick) has upended studies into political representation with his notion of the representative claim. In his latest book, Making representations (2020), he advances key aspects of political representation understood as the performative act of claiming to act for others.
During the colloquium, professor Saward will reflect on the reception of his innovative work over the last decade. Thereafter, students and faculty members will be able to ask questions pertaining to his work.
