On October 31st, at the Centre for Global Pluralism in Ottawa, the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung hosted a roundtable discussion featuring Jennifer Evans, primary investigator of the SSHRC-supported Populist Publics project on online hate and historical misrepresentation, along with Swen Steinberg (Queens U), Dani Carron (Carleton U, MA ’23) and David Yuzva Clement (Carleton U). Evans and panelists presented their research on settler colonialism and the appeal of Canadian homegrown racism for German far rights in the 20th and 21st centuries. Attendees included representatives of the Canadian Labour Congress, the Rideau Institute, area NGOs, sitting MPs, students, and former diplomats.

The research findings were published this summer in Central European History and are available via open access here.
