Who Watches the Watchmen? A Discussion About Race and Policing Through the Lens of Popular Entertainment

Location:

When HBO series Watchmen premiered in October 2019, the show—a dramatically different take on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’s original comic book/graphic novel—was noted for its direct confrontation of racism in America. Systemic racism, police brutality, collective trauma, and vigilante justice are all central themes to the TV remix. In light of ongoing deaths of Black Americans at the hands of police, nationwide protests, and calls for reforms, the show is now getting a second look with many calling it eerily prescient.

The Green New Deal, A Transatlantic Climate Change Consensus?

11:00am to 12:00pm

Location: 

Online

The Green New Deal is alternatively viewed as a bold and progressive American solution to climate change or an economically destructive government intrusion into private enterprise. Yet in the European Union, the ideas behind the Green New deal have become the consensus solution to decarbonization and which underpins much of the official climate change roadmap of the European Commission.
