How Discrimination Haunts Western Democracy
3401 Spruce Street
As right-wing nationalism and authoritarian populism gain momentum across the world, people worry that democratic principles are under threat, but Professor Michael Hanchard, Chair of the Africana Studies Department, argues that the current rise in xenophobia and racist rhetoric is nothing new. In this lecture, Hanchard will discuss how marginalization is reinforced in modern politics, and why these contradictions need to be fully examined if the dynamics of democracy are to be truly understood.
