This week on Yeah Nah Pasaran! we talk to return guest Alex Hinton [Twitter]. Alex is Distinguished Professor of Anthropology, Director of the Center for the Study of Genocide and Human Rights, UNESCO Chair on Genocide Prevention. We first spoke to Alex in June 2021 about his book It Can Happen Here: White Power and the Rising Threat of Genocide in the US (NYU, 2021).
On this week’s episode we spoke to Alex about his experience at the 2023 CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) in March, ‘ground zero for the current onslaught of anti-trans rhetoric and legislation in the U.S.’ (see : Two Myths Fueling the Conservative Right’s Dangerous Transphobia, SAPIENS, April 2023). We also spoke to him about war crimes and the International Criminal Court, genocide, hate speech, conspiracy theories, education and more. (NB. The recent publicity tour of Australia and New Zealand by anti-trans activist ‘Posie Parker’ was sponsored by CPAC’s Australian franchise.)
