Endre Dányi

Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Sociology, Johann Wolfgang Goethe University

Endre Dányi is currently lecturer and postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Sociology at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. Inspired by Actor-Network Theory (ANT), his doctoral thesis focused on the ways in which liberal democracy can be understood as a diverse set of material and discursive practices held together by a parliament. In his habilitation, Endre examines three instances when liberal democracy breaks down or reaches its limits: the European refugee crisis, global drug policy, and indigenous politics in Northern Australia. In addition to teaching and doing research, Endre is also founding editor of Mattering Press, an open access book publisher.
