(I’m helping with conference planning and chairing a plenary session; I also have a panel with Dr. Ronald Beiner, author of Dangerous Minds–we’ll be doing a panel on “fascism creep” in academia and what we can do to stay alert and resist fascists who try to infiltrate or co-opt the academy. But mainly I really just think you should check out the conference, whether you are an academic/researcher or activist–GIHS is a great project and needs a particularly strong conference this year to continue to get the support it needs to grow its work and demonstrate its contribution to the Gonzaga University campus community.)
