Panos Panayotu is a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Global Studies and the DEMINOVA research project. He studied Political Science at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and holds an MA in Ideology and Discourse Analysis from the University of Essex. He completed his PhD at Loughborough University. Panos’ research has focused on discourse analysis, contemporary theories of democracy, populism, transnationalism and social movements. His thesis developed the notion of transnational populism and analysed the pan-European movement-party DiEM25 as its most paradigmatic case. His work has appeared in Political Studies, the Journal for the Study of Radicalism and collective volumes with established academic publishers. Before joining Aarhus, Panos has worked at the University of Essex, SOAS University of London and Loughborough University.
