PANELISTS

IAN HANEY LÓPEZ is the originator of the race-class approach to beating dog-whistle politics. A law professor at UC Berkeley who specializes in Critical Race Theory, his focus for the last decade has been on the use of racism as a class weapon in electoral politics, and how to respond. In Dog Whistle Politics (2014), he detailed the fifty-year history of coded racism in American politics. He then co-chaired the AFL-CIO’s Advisory Council on Racial and Economic Justice and co-founded the Race-Class Narrative Project. In Merge Left: Fusing Race and Class, Winning Elections, and Saving America (2019), Ian explains Trump’s complex relationship with dog-whistling and further develops the race-class response. Ian is the Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Public Law at the University of California, Berkeley. He has published four books and two anthologies and lives in Richmond, California.

ROGER BERKOWITZ, moderator, is Academic Director at the Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities and Professor of Politics, Philosophy, and Human Rights at Bard College.

ADRIAN COSTA, a student representative, is a Senior majoring in both Political Studies and Theatre & Performance at Bard College.
