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.

Listen to the audio recording of “Social Resistance in Times of Austerity,” a panel discussion featuring me and Kostis Kornetis and recorded at Boston University by WBUR.
