Join us for a panel discussion with authors Eva Cherniavsky (Neocitizenship), Shane Burley (Fascism Today: What It Is and How To End It), and Alexander Reid Ross (Against the Fascist Creep), moderated by Charu Charusheela of UW Bothell. This event is a part of Red May Seattle.
Secession — the founding of a new community by breaking off from an existing state — is an idea that comes both in a Left version (anarcho-commune) and a Right version (white identity state). Under neoliberalism, the state itself has been seceding from its former functions like funding public works and providing a social safety net. How will these opposing forces interact both globally and in the future?
EVA CHERNIAVSKY teaches and pu...blishes in the areas of US literature, film, and critical theory. She is the author of That Pale Mother Rising: Sentimental Discourses and the Imitation of Motherhood in Nineteenth-Century America (Indiana UP, 1995) and Incorporations: Race, Nation, and the Body Politics of Capital (University of Minnesota Press, 2006). Her most recent book, Neocitizenship: Political Culture after Democracy (New York UP, 2017), explores the shifting meanings and practices of citizenship in the contemporary moment through the optics of popular culture, including dystopian science fiction.

His work as appeared in places such as Jacobin, AlterNet, In These Times, Political Research Associates, Waging Nonviolence, Labor Notes, ThinkProgress, ROAR Magazine and Upping the Anti.
