Fascism and Regimes of Knowledge

November 4, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm  |  Virtual Event


This symposium asks what the analytic of fascism offers for understanding the present authoritarian convergence. Panelists address the question of fascism as a geopolitically and historically diverse series of entanglements with (neo) liberalism, white supremacy, racial capitalism, imperialism, heteropatriarchy, and settler colonialism, and focus on the variety of antifascist collective organizing undertaken by Black, Indigenous, and other racialized subjects across the planet.
