Democratic Living in Fascist Time
The January 6, 2021 failed siege of the Capitol brings to the fore conversations about white supremacy and reactionary politics in the United States. Black feminists (activists and scholars) have consistently and vocally delineated an anti-fascist praxis that is conscious of itself as anti-fascist; yet their contributions to a larger critique of democratic capitalism as a home-grown fascist formation has largely been ignored. To counter this conspiracy of silence and for coping with these trying times, this lecture takes up various anti-fascist lessons from Black feminist anti-fascist praxes.
This event is co-sponsored by the UC Irvine Department of Political Science and the DECADE School-Based Councils for the School of Humanities, School of Social Ecology, and School of Social Sciences as well as the Office of the Equity Advisor for the School of Humanities and School of Social Sciences.
