Publisher's Synopsis

Tracing intersecting global genealogies of the new right from the United States to India, this issue focuses on the Right's attachment to crisis and catastrophe to justify its calls to return to "traditional" social and political structures. The contributors argue that these neotraditionalist countercultural intellectual movements form the basis of global white supremacist political projects that are disseminated through a new media landscape. Articles include discussions of the Right's favored narratives of political, infrastructural, economic, and ecological crisis and precarity; its reclaiming of nativist politics; birtherist fantasies of US white supremacy; and the political vision of violence as the only remaining mechanism of collective governance available to imagined white minorities.

Contributors. April Anson, Anindita Banerjee, Paul A. Bové, Leah Feldman, Olivia Harrison, Aamir R. Mufti, Donald E. Pease
