Description/Abstract of your Event: 

At this bifurcated moment of world history, with worrying developments towards authoritarianism and attendant modes of xenophobia in many countries, we are also witness to the tentative but meaningful return of interest in democratic socialism. In light of this situation, we want in this panel to explore the legacy of the socialist humanist tradition – a tradition that offers a unique perspective from which to not only counter authoritarianism, racism, sexism, etc., but also to challenge traditionalist approaches to work and politics that may be found on the currently resurgent social democratic left.
