The Imperial Presidency and Police Power
This fall we present a new iteration of the series Fictive Witness, which started in 2018 as part of our Ludlow 38 residency program and is now again organized by artists Tali Keren and Alex Strada. The first lecture-performance will see sociologist Alex S. Vitale explore the deep history of the American Presidency in relationship to the Black Lives Matter movement and their calls to “defund the police.” Historian Nikhil Pal Singh will respond to Vitale’s provocation to “abolish the presidency.”
