When

Thursday 1 October from 11am to 12pm

In the inaugural event this October, author of How Fascism Works Professor Jason Stanley (Yale University) and Dr Anna Funder (author and winner of the Miles Franklin Award for All That I Am) will lead an important discussion ahead of the United States election.

Join them as we dissect the current political climate in the United States in the context of the rise of authoritarian, ultranationalist political regimes around the world.

Professor Stanley identifies the strategies of fascist politicians including anti-intellectualism, appeals both to a mythic past and a victimised heartland, and the dismantling of public welfare and unity. In our age of climate change, refugee crisis and pandemic, Professor Stanley’s insights offer clarity on the threat to democracies everywhere.
