Alex DiBranco is currently studying how the New Right in the 1970s to 1990s built a sustainable movement infrastructure to realign the U.S. political spectrum, drawing on archival materials and a unique database of conservative foundation grants. Related projects include the role of anti-Catholicism and Catholic leadership in the New Right and the policy implications of conservative philanthropic practices. She is also working on a separate theoretical project, looking at contemporary misogynist ideology and how it advances the notion that male supremacism should be studied as a similar phenomenon to white supremacism and anti-Semitism.
