Dismantling Democracy

Kevin B. Anderson,
Jessica Pisano

“Authoritarian Politics,” presentation at panel on “Dismantling Democracy,” with Kevin B. Anderson, a Marxist-Humanist, and Jessica Pisano, part of NEH-supported colloquium series chaired by Julia Rothenberg and Laura Cohen, and sponsored by the Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center at Queensborough Community College of the City University of New York (May 6-on zoom).

The flip side of authoritarianism is democracy, which is performed and protected through a complex web of institutions, documents, social norms, and belief systems. Dr. Jessica Pisano, Associate Professor of Politics at the New School for Social Research and Dr. Kevin Anderson, professor of Sociology, Political Science and Feminist Studies at University of California, Santa Barbara, address the processes through which the conditions for the practice of democracy can and have been eroded in the past and present.
