New Paper on using Antifascist Praxis in Developmental Science

I am thrilled to share my recent paper, Antifascist Praxis in Developmental Science: Possibilities for Collective Resistance to Fascism,” published in Child Development Perspectives

This paper was co-authored by the brilliant Dr. Andrea Negrete, and my wonderful doctoral students Natasha Berger, Anne Dufault, Alexandria Onuoha, and Sarah Burnham. We present a call to action for scholars to use antifascist principles and practices (antifascist praxis) to oppose fascist threats.

I welcome your thoughts on what we wrote, and any other conversations about fascism, antifascism, and movement building. Please let me know if you want help accessing the paper; here is a view-only version of the full text.

Thank you for all you do to fight fascism and organize for collective liberation.

With hope,
