Abstract:

The negative international attention Russia has received regarding human rights, particularly leading up to and after the Sochi Olympics is by now well known. However, what is less acknowledged and theorized are the transnational connections between Russian political elites who promote regressive social policy and ultra conservative groups in the U.S. and elsewhere.  This talk will highlight some of these connections in order to illustrate the global entanglements of conservative nationalist agendas that wield xenophobia, racism, and sexually oppressive agendas to claim and shape contemporary ways of being and governance.
