The Road to the Alt Right : How Race Theory Split the Neoliberal Movement

Quinn Slobodian
Center for European Studies, Harvard University

November 23, 2017 – 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Room 580-31, 5th floor, 3744 Jean-Brillant St., Université de Montréal


The Alt Right emerged within not against neoliberalism. This talk will track a schism around the categories of culture and race in the neoliberal movement since the 1980s that splintered F. A. Hayek’s Mont Pèlerin Society and led to the founding of the rival Property and Freedom Society (PFS) in 2006. The PFS has become a gathering place for proponents of biological race theory and libertarian secession, including Hans-Hermann Hoppe, Richard Spencer and Jared Taylor, representing a startling new development in the history of organized neoliberalism.

Cet événement est réalisé en partenariat avec le Centre canadien d’études allemandes et européennes.
