This week on Yeah Nah Pasaran! we talk to Ashley Mattheis [Twitter]. Ashley has a PhD. in Communication, is a feminist and studies the material effects of cultural production and consumption, the use of web-based media, and online misogynies. She was a previous guest of ours in April 2021 when we talked about memes, Momfluencers, Shieldmaidens & moar. On this episode we spoke to Ashley about the ongoing legacy of the defunct Atomwaffen Division in its various guises and as part of a wider network of neo-Nazi terror; Mauricio Garcia, the Allen, Texas, mass shooting and the importance of applying an intersectional analytic framework to aid our understanding of such events.
