With the rise to prominence of conservative ideologies across the Western World, studying the genesis of ‘anti-modern’ European traditions has gained new urgency. The conference aims to sketch a typology of modern conservative thinking based on the notions of dialogue and circulation between European intellectual centres and their peripheries, Enlightenment philosophy and conservative thinkers, and various other actors involved in the process. It will further discuss the long-term transformation of conservative ideas and rhetoric through the lense of transnational connections, against nation-centric studies of Conservatism in which supra-national exchanges are often hidden by structural discourses.
