WORKS IN PROGRESS

Adventures in Post-Democracy

This project engages and extends the literature on democratic backsliding generally by moving beyond standard indices of democratic health to consider extra-institutional sites of both democratic and anti-democratic politics. It does so particularly by rooting the threat of U.S. democratic decline in the specificities of prior racial orders here. I combine field observations from GOP events, far-right rallies, white supremacist meetings, and Blue Lives Matter counter-demonstrations with archival materials on the development of right-wing populism since the 1990s. The book has generated interest from both Oxford University Press and the University of California Press.

The Rise of the Multiracial Right. This co-edited volume with Daniel Martinez HoSang that brings together leading scholars of race and politics (including Janelle Wong, Corey Fields, Cristina Beltran, and Laura Pulido) to examine this phenomenon among Black, Latinx, API, and Indigenous voters, elected officials, and political entrepreneurs; as well as in prominent institutional sites of conservative politics, such as think tanks, media outlets, and party organizations. Under contract with New York University Press in November 2022.
