Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories:

Anna Duensing, a doctoral candidate in the joint program in History and African American Studies specializing in transnational U.S.-German social and cultural history. Her primary research concerns the long civil rights movement, black radicalism, and histories of white supremacy and state violence.

This talk is a reflection on the global rise of rightwing populism and recent acts of far-right terror in the United States, particularly the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville and the massacre at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Anne explores the entanglements of racism, antisemitism, and xenophobia linking marginal actors and mainstream politics, taking seriously what scholars have called the “afterlife of fascism” in a U.S. context.
