15th EAPC Conference – Emotions in Politics and Campaigning

Emotions are crucial if campaigns want to successfully reach their target groups. What has been conventional wisdom in the campaign business has recently been neurosciences, social psychology, and linguistics. Don’t miss the EAPC meeting in May 2010 that brings it all together in an event shining light on the emotional side of politics and campaigning: Leading scholars explain the political brain, politicians describe their feelings during campaigning and in office, experts shine a light on the emotions in recent campaigns, and political consultants explain how they reach people’s hearts and minds. It’s a unique occasion to get inspired about a topic that will change the way you understand and run campaigns. Learn more about the conference:
Keynote Speakers:

  • George Lakoff, bestselling author and a renowned scholar in cognitive science, will explain the „Political Mind“
  • Drew Westen, renowned psychologist and neuroscientist, will explain the „Political Brain“
  • Erhard Busek, former vice chancellor of Austria, will talk about the „Soul of Europe“
  • Hans-Georg Häusel, Neuromarketing pioneer, gives insights into neuroscientific foundations of campaigning
  • Ted Brader, author of “Campaigning for Hearts and Minds”, will tell you how it works

The Mayor of Vienna and the President of the Austrian Parliament will receive the conference partipants in their historical Ringstrassen buildings. Learn more about the conference:
