On 30 November, Antonio Roman-Alcalá will defend his thesis 'Histories of othering, practices of solidarity, and prospects for emancipatory convergence among California’s food and farming movements in times of resurgent rightwing power'
Focusing on the case of California, this research attends to the key role of ‘others’ within the continuing interactive dynamic of rightwing and emancipatory politics.
Roman-Alcalá looks historically and at today’s rural and agrarian ‘Others’ – those who have been Othered or marginalized by their social class positions – to answer answer the question: How do agrarian and rural movements in California describe and manifest emancipatory politics, and in what ways and to what extent might these politics counter historical trajectories and current manifestations of rightwing politics?
