A conversation with Yale professor and author Jason Stanley and USC Architecture Dean Milton S.F. Curry
“Fascism, Aesthetics & Politics,” a conversation between Jason Stanley and USC Architecture Dean Milton S.F. Curry, will shed new light on the topic of fascism from the vantage points of political philosophy, architecture and urbanism. A reception and book signing in Harris Hall will immediately follow the talk.

Prior to joining Yale in 2013, he held teaching positions at Rutgers University, the University of Michigan, and Cornell University. His Ph.D. was earned at the MIT Department of Linguistics and Philosophy (Robert Stalnaker, chair), and he received his B.A. from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Stanley has two forthcoming books: “How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them” and “The Politics of Language,” co-authored with David Beaver.
