Justin Gilmore is a PhD candidate at UC Santa Cruz. His research is focused on the transformation of the US radical right since the 1970s. Looking at today’s radical right as arising from a conjunctural political situation, Justin’s work is focused on how the far right has been impacted by ‘neoliberal’ social forms whose hegemony has become increasingly unstable. Justin’s dissertation tracks how this destabilization of legitimacy has elicited new reactionary practices, subjectivities and affects.
