What Rough Beast? Contending with Trumpism

December 7, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

IRCPL Post-Doctoral Research Scholar and faculty member at the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research, K. Soraya Batmanghelichi, will be among the speakers at a special live recording of the Podcast for Social Research, sponsored by the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research.

This session of the podcast responds to the urgent need for critical reflection in the wake of the recent, deeply divisive presidential election. Guests Kazembe Balagun (Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung) and Bhaskar Sunkara (Jacobin) will convene together with BISR faculty including Tony Alessandrini, K. Soraya Batmanghelichi, Raphaële Chappe, Ajay Singh Chaudhary, Samantha Hill, Audrey Nicolaides, Rebecca Ariel Porte, Suzanne Schneider, and Jude Webre. What went wrong in the lead-up to the election? And what is to be done in its aftermath? How should we define Trumpism and and how can we understand it? In addition to contending with these questions, this panel will wrestle with the implications of an increasingly authoritarian executive branch, the problems of political resistance, and the question of how afraid we should really be. A sequel to our first, election-themed live recording of the podcast, which took place in October, this event will be free and open to the public. 21+, suggested donation: $8.
