Militant Anti-Fascism in North America and Europe
Historian, Mark Bray, author of the forthcoming book Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook (Melville House), will join the Social Movements Lab to discuss his research in a talk entitled "Militant Anti-Fascism in Europe and North America." In a recent review in The New Yorker, Daniel Penny writes: "Bray's book is many things: the first English-language transnational history of antifa, a how-to for would-be activists, and a record of advice from anti-Fascist organizers past and present." More broadly, Bray is a historian of human rights, terrorism, and political radicalism in Modern Europe, and is currently a lecturer at Dartmouth College. We hope you will join us for this important conversation about anti-Fascist organizing locally and globally.
In addition to Mark Bray's talk in the evening (5:30pm), also please join us earlier in the day for a discussion on anti-fascist resistance: Mon. 9/18, 12pm-1pm in the Social Movements Lab space at FHI (Smith Warehouse, Bay 4).
In preparation for our discussion, please read Mark Bray's essay,
"Trump and everyday anti-fascism beyond punching Nazis"
