What Rough Beast? Contending with Trumpism

The Bell House
149 7th St
Brooklyn, NY 11215

Please join us for a live recording of the Podcast 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.

In advance of the event, you might want to check out some of our participating faculty members’ reactions to the election of Donald Trump and the perspective of life under Trumpism.
