A virtual conversation with:
Alyson Cole, Professor of Political Science, Women & Gender Studies, and American Studies at Queens College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York. Cole’s work bridges political theory and American politics/culture, linking central questions of political thought—especially formulations of justice, the nature of vulnerability, precarity and subjugation, and the possibility of resistance—with an examination of political ideologies, rhetoric, and law/policy-making, emphasizing gender, sexuality, and race.
Darrick Hamilton, University professor, the Henry Cohen Professor of Economics and Urban Policy, and the founding director of the Institute for the Study of Race, Stratification and Political Economy at The New School. Considered one of the nation’s foremost scholars, economists and public intellectuals, Hamilton’s accomplishments include recently being profiled in the New York Times, Mother Jones magazine and the Wall Street Journal and being featured in Politico Magazine’s 2017 50 Ideas Shaping American Politics and the People Behind Them issue. Also, he is a member of the Marguerite Casey Foundation in partnership with the Group Health Foundation’s inaugural class of Freedom Scholars.
Joseph Lowndes, Professor of political science at the University of Oregon. His research is on race, populism, conservatism, and social movements in US politics. His most recent book, with Daniel Martinez HoSang, is Producers, Parasites, Patriots: Race and the New Right-Wing Politics of Precarity (2019). His current project traces the development of “Middle America,” and its destructive impact on US politics over the last half-century.
Moderator: Victoria Hattam, Professor of Politics at The New School for Social Research. She received her PhD in Political Science from MIT. Hattam works in three research areas: US-Mexico border politics, design and production in the global economy, and visual and spatial politics.
