Unmasking the Technologies of White Supremacy

TAPS 1251D S01 [CRN: 17982]

This advanced undergraduate seminar looks to examine the re-emergent topics of white supremacy and fascism within the so-called post-truth political media landscape. We will proceed by returning to critiques of white male patriarchy at the heart of white supremacy. The course will follow three streams of critical theory and their attendant historical moments. The first section will draw from black feminism and critiques of fundamental American forms of freedom built upon the immobility of "the other" in the service of white racial capital. The second section of the course will contend with the recent rise of Proud Boys, Identity Europa, and the rise of the far-right in Eastern Europe through the lens of performance studies to understand the procedures of identification and aesthetics that lead to white supremacy.
