Making History Now, Racism, Resistance and Strategies for Building Alliances in the World of Trump
The US Election last week seemingly caught the world by surprise. But maybe the signals were there. Join members of the History Department, along with scholars and activists from across campus, for a teach-in exploring the place of racial rhetoric and racial divisions in the campaign, the election results, the connections between the US election and right wing nationalism in other countries, and the implications of this racial environment for Canadians and Americans. Presenters will explore what has happened, where it fits in a wider view of American and transnational history, and how we can respond from Canada as activists and allies.
