TEACH-IN: Eco-Fascism: Climate Change and the Far Right
Emerging first as a right-wing bludgeon against the environmental movement, tenants of eco-fascism have been adopted by growing segments of the right who wish to co-opt leftist ideas regarding the environment as a way to push back against immigration and implement white nationalism. This talk investigates the history of eco-fascism, the reasons behind its current growth and the dangers it poses should the left not formulate a robust enough response to the climate crisis.

SCREENING: Martin Scorsese’s After Hours
Slightly uptight (and uptown-dwelling) typist Griffin Dunne improbably picks up Rosanna Arquette in a coffee shop when he spies her reading Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer, and an invitation to come visit her bohemian loft in hip and dangerous downtown SoHo results in our hero embarking on a hilarious and nightmarish odyssey, in which he tries to get back home.
