Critical Theory and the Humanities in the Age of the Alt-Right
by Christine M. Battista
English | 2019 | ISBN: 3030187527 | 240 Pages | PDF | 3 MB
This edited collection uses critical theory in order to understand the rise of the Alt-Right and the election of Donald TrumpвЂ•and, in doing so, to assert the necessity and value of various disciplines within the humanities. While neoliberal mainstream culture has expressed shock at the seemingly expeditious rise of the Alt-Right movement and the outcome of the 2016 United States presidential election, a rich tradition of theory may not only explain the occurrence of this "phenomenon," but may also chart an alternative understanding of the movement, revealing the persistence of right-wing populism throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
