Capitalist Anti-Capitalists, Racists Anti-Racists; the Normativity of Whiteness in Left Spaces

Hometown: Harrisonburg, Virginia

Department: Interdisciplinary Studies

Advisor: Kara Thompson

For my research, I will use critical discourse analysis to analyze the speech of white activists, determining the ways in which ideologies of individualism, whiteness, and commodification have remained present, converting activist communities into competitions and preventing the formation of effective left movements. This research also entails a detailed theoretical critique and analysis as to how we might escape this trap of the "ally industrial complex".
