Twenty Years of War: Coalitions of War and Anti-War (Class, Race, Global)

Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 3:00pm

Virtual Event

In 2001, the Global War on Terror (GWOT) was inaugurated under U.S. leadership. Since then, U.S. Armed Forces have conducted significant operations in at least ten countries and been implicated in military operations and incarceration in dozens more. Several other countries have also waged their own GWOT security-state campaigns. But to what ends? This year's 20th anniversary of the GWOT is an opportunity for timely, nuanced reflection.

In this webinar, a panel of leading scholars, journalists, and activists take stock of the GWOT era and its widespread consequences. In the U.S. and elsewhere, “homeland security” has intersected with struggles over official Islamophobia, cross-border migration, Indigenous dispossession, and mass incarceration. Join us as war reporter Anand Gopal, Judith LeBlanc (Native Organizers Alliance), veteran and writer Lyle Jeremy Rubin, Samar Al-Bulushi (UC Irvine), and Tejasvi Nagaraja (ILR School) look back on the previous two decades and ahead to the future.

This is the second of two sessions offering expert reflection on the Global War on Terror, hosted by Tejasvi Nagaraja and cosponsored by Cornell’s Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, American Studies Program, and the ILR School. See the first session on November 30.


Class, Race, Global: An event series sponsored by Cornell’s Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies

Class, Race, Global brings together scholars, journalists, and activists for dynamic conversations on diverse topics in history and politics. We ask: How do class, race, and global inequalities and struggles intersect with one another? What links can be revealed between “domestic” issues and “foreign” regions? 

The series is part of the Einaudi Center’s inequalities and social justice global research priority. Email for more information.
