Description

The recent crisis at the United States’ southern border has drawn much attention to the country’s long history of migration, racism, and incarceration.

This lecture with Udi Greenberg, associate professor of history at Dartmouth College, will seek to shed light on the role of international politics in the shaping of its policies.

In particular, it will explore the evolution of the theory of “militant democracy,” which emerged during the 1930s in Europe and became an important concept among many policymakers since. It will reflect on this theory’s impact, and some of its legacies in the twenty first century.”
