I was honoured to be invited to be a panelist at this event held at the University of King’s College on November 17, 2017. In a moment of rising fascism, aggrieved masculinity, and rabid white supremacy, critical and nuanced discussions about what’s really at stake in the “free speech” debates and the new “culture wars” are all the more urgent. For those interested, here’s the text of my presentation.

The Radical Imagination on Against the Grain Radio

It was a real pleasure to talk with C.S. and to be a part of such an important, grassroots, social justice program.
