On this week’s episode of Yeah Nah, we speak to academic and writer Anastasia Kanjere about critical race theory (CRT), whiteness studies, and the contemporary Australian far right. Anastasia presented a paper titled ‘Fascists in and out of uniform: making sense of street fascism in the broader context of white supremacy’ at the Histories of Fascism And Anti-Fascism in Australasia Symposium in Adelaide in December last year; fingers crossed it’ll be published at some point.

*For those wanting to explore some of the issues and texts referred to in the interview, on the origins of CRT Anastasia recommends: James Baldwin, Nobody Knows My Name (1961); Derrick Bell, Faces At The Bottom Of The Well (1992); Angela Davis, If They Come in the Morning (1971); Richard Dyer, White (1997); Toni Morrison, Playing In The Dark (1992).
