Event description

Description

The past decade has seen a rise of openly racist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, homophobic, and misogynistic groups both in the United States and around the world. The goal of this conference is to map various domestic and foreign iterations of the current far-right, racist, and/or anti-Semitic ethos, to explore the ideologies and ideas of these groups, to consider their commonalities, as well as their divergencies and tensions.

Keynotes:

Howard Winant, Professor of Sociology at University of California, Santa Barbara (Sunday)

Timothy Snyder, Richard C. Levin Professor of History at Yale University (Monday)
