Details

How are the symbols of the past reimagined, manipulated, and reused in the present? This talk looks at a number of ways that the Alt-Right has appropriated ancient sayings, symbols, and acronyms for their own purposes. What was the actual context for the swastika, fascesSPQR, ‘Molon Labe,’ or white statues, and what role does public history playing in making the populace aware of the semiotics of hate?
