Hickory Public Library is partnering with Hickory Community Theatre to provide a virtual meeting with Jason Hackworth, author of Manufacturing Decline: How Racism and the Conservative Movement Crush the American Rust Belt (2019, Columbia University Press). By weaving together analyses of urban policy, movement conservatism, and market fundamentalism, Hackworth highlights in Manufacturing Decline the central role of racial reaction in creating the problems American cities still face.
Jason Hackworth is a Professor in the Department of Geography and Planning at the University of Toronto. He teaches and writes about urban decline, political economy and racial exclusion. He is also the author of The Neoliberal City: Governance, Ideology, and Development in American Urbanism (2007) and Faith Based: Religious Neoliberalism and the Politics of Welfare in the United States (2012).
This program is a complement to Hickory Community Theatre’s presentation of Dominique Morisseau’s Skeleton Crew at the Jeffers Theatre from May 13-23, 2021.
