Trumpism: The Politics of Gender in a Post-Propitious America
Description/Abstract of your Event: 

The 2016 rise of Donald Trump to the world’s highest political office has shocked many and represents a shift in American politics away from pluralism and respectability. Trump’s statements against women, minority groups, and his critics have fanned the flames of hatred and division. Nonetheless, a large percentage of voters (including 53 percent of white female voters) cast their ballots for Trump rather than for the better-qualified frontrunner Hillary Clinton, who would have been the first female President of the United States. This panel will feature the editors and contributors to the forthcoming anthology Trumpism: The Politics of Gender in a Post-Propitious America, which is a collection of diverse voices (scholars and activists) left out of the mainstream media surrounding the election. The panelists will analyze Trump's words, actions, and policies from a gendered lens and offer solutions to surviving Trumpism.
