Research Grant Awards and Projects
I am currently working on a project that explores some of the most significant facets of right-wing populism in American politics and culture, from its role in the suppression of radicalism during the 20th century, to its deployment as an alibi for the lost war in Vietnam and as a cultural imperative to "Support the Troops" in America's contemporary military adventures, to the role of the gun lobby and gun rights culture in mediating between corporate neoliberalism and right-wing conspiracism in the present day. These thematically related papers will eventually form the core of another book.
These papers, and some others from earlier phases of my career, are available online at Academia.edu.
