Join us in the MSU Main Library for a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon as a part of MSU's Year of Global Africa (globalafrica.isp.msu.edu). An edit-a-thon is an organized event to improve coverage of particular topics on Wikipedia. This event will focus on creating and improving Wikipedia articles about notable women in various fields from all regions of Africa, with emphasis on important women who currently lack Wikipedia articles. Both new and experienced Wikipedia contributors are welcome. Experienced editors will be on hand to assist new editors—no experience is necessary! An edit-a-thon is a great way for new Wikipedia editors to learn the basics of contributing to Wikipedia, and for Wikipedia contributors to meet one another. Reference sources and refreshments will be provided!

The Extreme Gone Mainstream

Dr. Cynthia Miller-Idriss

Oct. 29, 2018
3:00-4:30 PM
International Center Room 303
 
The past decade has witnessed a steady increase in far right politics, social movements, and extremist violence in Europe. Scholars and policymakers have struggled to understand the causes and dynamics that have made the far right so appealing to so many people—in other words, that have made the extreme more mainstream. In this talk, Cynthia Miller-Idriss examines how extremist ideologies have entered mainstream German culture through commercialized products and clothing laced with extremist, anti-Semitic, racist, and nationalist coded symbols and references. Her book draws on a unique digital archive of thousands of historical and contemporary images, as well as interviews with young people and their teachers.
