MSUB lecture series continues

On Tuesday, March 28, MSUB Assistant Professor of Political Science Dr. Paul Pope presents, “American Democracy and the Rise of the Alt-Right.”
Pope says the heart of his lecture is the concept of “othering.”
“Sometimes, you hear about this phenomenon as ‘us versus them,’ he said. “I’m looking at a very specific kind of othering, an othering in support of, or to expand the security state.”
Pope asks the question “is the Alt-Right fascism by another name?” He will investigate the narratives of the Alt-Right, and their meaning, as members voiced during the 2016 election as well as their own expressed worldview in social media. Pope will contrast the Alt-Right ideology and expressed beliefs with other historical studies of fascist ideology.
“The other (area) I am focusing on is the narrative attacks on minorities, media, immigrants, and some foreign governments as justification for a large and all-powerful security state,” he said.
Pope has been with MSUB since 2012. He teaches courses in American government, public law, and public administration. His research areas include power, constitutional law, and political/policy narratives. He has previously published with Law and Society journal, Administration and Society journal, and Cengage Researcher.
