Project description

Unfolding the legacy of pamphleteering

Since the early Enlightenment and throughout history, pamphlets have been printed and distributed in hopes of shaping public opinion with ideological texts. The pamphlet has been at the forefront of major philosophical, social and political transformations, as well as processes of (de-)democratisation and (de-)colonisation. For instance, since the fall of the Berlin Wall, pamphleteering has re-emerged as a vital transformative and polemical force in liberal Western societies, prompting often-polarised discussions of contentious issues. The EU-funded ArtsAutonomy project will study pamphletary events, including analytic 'slices' of evolving public opinion on pamphletary statements, as recorded in transcripts of public deliberations, open letters, online commentary, user and consumer feedback, and social media.
