Menard Family George Washington Forum hosts author on rise of a new elite on Jan. 20

The Menard Family George Washington Forum hosts a discussion with Musa Al-Gharbi on "We Have Never Been Woke: Social Justice Discourse, Inequality and the Rise of a New Elite" on Thursday, Jan. 20, at 7:30 p.m. in Galbreath Chapel on College Green.

 

This event also will be live-streamed for those who cannot attend in person. All are welcome to attend. 

 

Al-Gharbi will be discussing his first book, We Have Never Been Woke: Social Justice Discourse, Inequality and the Rise of a New Elite, forthcoming from Princeton University Press in 2023.

 

"Musa al-Gharbi reckons that wokeism is a word more used than understood,” said Robert Ingram, professor of history in the College of Arts & Sciences and director of the Menard Family George Washington Forum. “He wants us to understand it and today’s political divisiveness in the context both of rising socioeconomic inequality and of the emergence of a new social elite.”
