About the seminar

In this engaging talk, Jessie Daniels draws on 20 years of research to
demonstrate that white supremacy is neither new nor an aberration, but
rather a consistent feature of the US political landscape. Savvy white
nationalists and members of the “altright” movement use culture jamming
tactics on Facebook and Twitter to inject racist memes like #WhiteGenocide
into popular political and cultural discussions. And,
@realDonaldTrump retweets them all to his 5 million-plus followers. In
response to this increased visibility and amplification of white supremacy
in the mainstream of US political culture, white liberals express shock
at what they perceive is a new development. It is not.
