Professors Michael Hardt and Joshua Clover discuss the rise of right-wing movements in the United States and around the world, and the impulse to fight back. In a time of capitalist crisis, what forms of anti-capitalist struggle are possible, and what is effective against the current ruling power?

Michael Hardt is Professor of Literature at Duke University and with Antonio Negri, co-author of Empire (2000), Multitude (2004), and Assembly (2017). Joshua Clover is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at UC Davis and the author of Riot.Strike.Riot: A New Era of Uprisings (2016).

This event is sponsored by Mellon Research Initiative on Racial Capitalism, Manetti Shrem Museum, Department of English, Department of Comparative Literature
