The resurgence of authoritarian and fascist trends in many countries is part and parcel of our current social landscape. Honouring Dr. Agnes Calliste’s work, and making use of an interdisciplinary and intersectional analysis, I will address some of the ways in which settler-colonialism, racialization, and notions of (non-)belonging interrelate, (re)producing discourses on—and an allegiance to—authoritarianism and fascism among some youth in Canada and the United States who make use of Instagram.
Dr. Hernandez will be honouring the work of Dr. Agnes Calliste who received the 2019 Outstanding Contribution Award.
