Suzanne van Geuns

Suzanne van Geuns is a doctoral student at the University of Toronto. Her dissertation project is an ethnographic investigation of three overlapping online subcultures that use the internet to launch right-wing futures: conservative Christianity, antifeminism, and white nationalism. All three of these fields are characterized by the conviction that they are salvaging beleaguered truths about reality from feminist/leftist/multiculturalist suppression. They claim that these truths—of the Bible, concerning women, about what race actually means—ought to structure the world each site visitor, blogger, or forum user lives in. This project, focused on the relationships between such transcendental truths, immediate material reality, and making the world anew, maps the online infrastructures of right-wing aspiration, which renders the futures they generate debatable in new ways.
