Fighting Fascism and the Far Right

January 12 @ 4:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Join Brendan O’Connor and Jay Caspian Kang for a conversation about fighting fascism in the context of recent far-right violence.

About this Event

Even as Donald Trump prepares to leave office, the forces that put him there have not yet dissipated, as the storming of Capitol Hill by a militant coalition of revanchist small business owners, street-fighting neo-fascists, and Qanon cultists made clear earlier this month.

Through on-the-ground reporting, archival research, and critical analysis, Brendan O’Connor’s Blood Red Lines: How Nativism Fuels the Right unearths the history of this social formation, tracks its transformation during the Trump years, and charts its future.
