    Ian Haney López on Race-Class Praxis - Election 2020: UC Berkeley Big Ideas

    Ian Haney López on Race-Class Praxis - Election 2020: UC Berkeley Big Ideas

    Ian Haney López is is the Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Public Law at the University of California, Berkeley. He specializes on race and racism in the law. His focus for the last decade has been on the use of racism in electoral politics, and how to respond.

Ian is the author of three books, White By Law: The Legal Construction of Race (2006), Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism & Wrecked the Middle Class (2014), and most recently, Merge Left: Fusing Race and Class, Winning Elections and Saving America (2019) Series: "UC Public Policy Channel" [Public Affairs] [Show ID: 36290]

    Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the Election - Election 2020: UC Berkeley Big Ideas

    Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the Election - Election 2020: UC Berkeley Big Ideas

    Today we explore the life and legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the consequences her death may have for election 2020. The sudden death of the 87 year old jurist and feminist icon has not only disrupted the already unprecedented election season, but it has raised the stakes for the Presidency, the Senate and the future of the Supreme Court going forward. In this discussion we try to illuminate the partisan politics behind seeking her replacement, the constituencies most committed to replacing Ginsberg as well as those most threatened by this right wing shift in the Court, while holding up the possibility of future resistance and the need to mobilize in the defense of democracy. Join us as we attempt to displace despair with hope and replace anxiety with analysis in this moment of crisis. Series: "UC Public Policy Channel" [Public Affairs] [Show ID: 36279]
