The Politics of Everybody: A Marxist-Queer View from the U.S.
Our first speaker in the Truth and Democracy: Journalism, Politics, and Social Science conference series is Holly Lewis, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Texas State University.
Dr. Lewis specializes in Continental Philosophy, Marxist political economy and debates in gender. She is active in the anti-fascist movement in her University. Her specific interest has been in critiquing the voluntarist counter-cultural sentiment in Western queer politics through an economic analysis based on feminist readings of Capital. She holds a Ph.D. from the European Graduate School in Media and Philosophy, an MA from the University of Pennsylvania in Comparative Culture and Politics and an MFA in Fiction from New York University. She is the author of The Politics of Everybody: Feminism, Queer Theory, and Marxism at the Intersection.
This event has been organized by the Concordia Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism Studies (CCBJS) and Le centre de recherche interdisciplinaire sur la diversité et la démocratie (CRIDAQ).
