Abstract: Racism Against and By Eastern Europeans: Racism appears in different forms and at different historical conjunctures, justifying inequalities of economic and political power. Prof. Kalmar’s presentation focuses on the development of racism against Eastern Europeans, which in his book ˆWhite But Not Quite: Central Europe’s Illiberal Revolt” (2022) he terms “Eastern Europeanism.” To Kalmar, illiberalism is everywhere a misdirected revolt against the globalized version of neoliberal capitalism. In the East of Europe, it has been fueled also by Western prejudice and discrimination. Prof. Kalmar will present some of the main findings of his book, including its relevance to the current war in Ukraine.
