An Evening with Resistance Studies!
On the occasion of the inauguration of the Centre for Resistance Studies, led by prof. Balazs Apor at the Trinity Long Room Hub (Trinity College Dublin), you are cordially invited for the keynote lecture from Professor Ruth Ben-Ghiat (Professor of History and Italian Studies, NYU), ‘How to Resist a Strongman: Lessons from a Century of Authoritarian Rule’ held online on Tuesday, 9 March 2021 at 7 PM Dublin Time/8 PM CET.
This lecture will examine a century of resistance to ‘strongman’ rule, using examples from Italy, Chile, Russia, America, Libya, Turkey and elsewhere. Professor Ben-Ghiat will look at the impact of changing media technologies on practices of dissent, and will also discuss what has not changed in relation, for example, to the use of mass non-violent protest or to the use of the body as a site of resistance.
