A CCS panel talk delivered to the 2021 Southwestern Humanities Symposium—a graduate student conference held February 26-27 at Arizona State University. This year's conference revolved around themes of normalcy and un/non/dis/abnormalcy.

Listen in as six of our CCS research fellows and Peace, Land, & Bread editors talk about the intersection of normalcy and ideology, ecology, and society, demonstrating how Marxist theory works to dissect normalcy, and to uncover the material bases of ideological and superstructural norms.
