White Skin, Black Fuel: On the Dangers of Fossil Fascism - with Andreas Malm, Laudy van den Heuvel and Anoushka Zoob Carter in conversation with Ash Sarkar
What does the rise of the far right mean for the battle against climate change?
Housmans is pleased to welcome Andreas Malm and Laudy van den Heuvel and Anoushka Zoob Carter from the Zetkin Collective to discuss White Skin, Black Fuel, the first study of the far right’s role in the climate crisis.
Fossil-fuelled technologies were born steeped in racism. White Skin, Black Fuel presents an eye-opening sweep of a novel political constellation, revealing its deep historical roots. No one loved them more passionately than the classical fascists. Now right-wing forces have risen to the surface, some professing to have the solution—closing borders to save the nation as the climate breaks down.
Andreas, Laudy and Anoushka will be in conversation with Ash Sarkar, senior editor at Novara Media.
Andreas Malm is a scholar of human ecology, and the author of The Progress of this Storm and of Fossil Capital, which won the Isaac and Tamara Deutscher Memorial Prize.
Laudy van den Heuvel is a Dutch investigative journalist focusing on conspirituality, libertarianism and health.
Anoushka Zoob Carter is a researcher based at the University of Sussex, exploring the nexus between land, food and right-wing politics.
Laudy and Anoushka are part of the Zetkin Collective, a group of scholars, activists and students working on the political ecology of the far right.
Ash Sarkar is a senior editor at Novara Media, and lectures in political theory at the Sandberg Instituut.
