Spoke on Stationary and Sassy Podcast
And now something a little fun. I joined my friends Penelope and Jamey on their podcast, Stationary and Sassy, to talk about Fast and the Furious, early-2000s German B-movies, and the pop cultural history of the car film.

Give it a listen!

Speaking at World Pride 2021
My talk on the new White Supremacy in Europe and the US from the FLUID Festival at World Pride Copenhagen is online!

I had a ton of fun talking about how we need to revisit our models of hate and bigotry to understand white supremacy not as a distinct ideology, but rather a limit point of intersectional forms of hatred. Within this context, I discussed how hate movements are weaponizing media and politics to generate transphobia, even among feminist movements.

Contributed to a book
I was a minor contributor to the inimitable Kathleen Belew's forthcoming book, A Field Guide to White Supremacy. It's a collection of essays by leading scholars on what white supremacy and extremism looks like today. I contributed to the style guide section, particularly on issues around referring to gender and gender identity.

The book is available for preorder now, and I can't recommend it enough!

Spoke on the Bold Dominion Podcast
I joined Bold Dominion again to talk about the impact of Unite the Right four years after the event. I'm honored to join Jalane Schmidt and Sally Hudson, two of the most brilliant and powerful people I am privileged to know.

I believe that in time, we will come to recognize what happened in Charlottesville as one of the most important turning points in 21st Century American politics.
