Horace G. Campbell is an internationally known peace and justice activist. He holds a joint professorship in the Department of African American Studies and the Department of Political Science in the Maxwell School at Syracuse University. Join us for a virtual conversation on the following:
The 2020 uprisings inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement are the broadest in U.S. History. The uprisings erupted at a moment of deep structural crisis for the society compounded by the health pandemic. All institutions of the society were affected by the implosion. Campbell’s presentation will argue that the transition beyond neoliberal capitalism will severely splinter the military as the weaponization of everything affects the balance between the role of force and the relations of force in the society. As the foundations of white racism are being shaken, the conclusion will query whether the liberal management of society can resolve the questions unleashed by the capitalist crisis or will the society and the military face an 1860 moment.
