The Impact of American Exceptionalism on Culture & Policy

February 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join NH Peace Action as we listen to a timely dissection and analysis of the impact of American Exceptionalism on culture & policy with Prof. Eric Cheyfitz and facilitated by NH Peace Action board member, Jeremy Love.

Eric Cheyfitz, the Ernest I. White Professor of American Studies and Humane Letters at Cornell University, is a faculty member of the American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program (AIISP). Dr. Cheyfitz has served as director of the AIISP, the faculty coordinator of the Mellon-Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program, and the director of the Mellon Post-doctoral Diversity Seminar. His scholarship and teaching focus on the force of settler colonialism on Indigenous peoples and their ongoing resistance in the form of alternative ways of thought and action to the predatory capitalism embedded in settler existence.

His most recent book is The Disinformation Age: The Collapse of Liberal Democracy in the United States (PaperBoat Press, 2019), which in its final chapter, “Thinking From A Different Place: What Is A Just Society?,” offers, beyond “the limits of capitalism’s imagination,” an Indigenous alternative to the way out of the current crisis of climate collapse and wealth inequality.
