The North Carolina German Studies Seminar and Workshop Series (NCGS), an interdisciplinary and inter-institutional group of scholars in the Research Triangle of North Carolina, cordially invites you to our next online event:
 

Friday, 12 November 2021 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm (Eastern Time)
NCGS “CHALLENGING CONVERSATIONS:”
Roundtable Fascism and Anti-Fascism in Global Perspective
 

ABSTRACT: The electoral success of rightwing populist parties in major democracies has sparked an international discussion about the efficacy of “fascism” as an analytical framework. Do analogies with early- and mid-twentieth-century fascist movements and governments make sense today? What attributes, if any, do they share today and with historical fascism? To date, the German and Italian “models” have dominated the discussion about “strongmen” and authoritarianism. This roundtable takes a global perspective by posing these questions in relation to India, Brazil, Poland, and Germany.
