Shaping Democratic Spaces: Security and TV Series

DEMOSERIES is a European Research Council project hosted at University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.

The project

Under the direction of Sandra Laugier, professor of philosophy at University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, the DEMOSERIES ERC Project brings together a team of philosophers, sociologists, and political scientists to explore a corpus of ‘security TV series’ from conception to reception. 

Main objectives:

  • study TV series' aesthetic potential for visualising political and ethical issues
  • examine how 'security TV series' are conceived both by their creators and audiences
  • grasp the influence of ‘security TV series’ on their viewers, in particular how they create shared and shareable moral values in the EU and beyond
  • elucidate TV series’ crucial role in developing a collective understanding of democracy in its relation to fiction, politics and security
  • explore how they raise awareness for the protection of individuals and societies in current and future crises.
