CFP (Conference): GSA 2021 - EASTERN EUROPEAN AND NON-WESTERN MEDIA VIEWS OF RIGHT-WING POLITICS IN GERMANY, PAST AND PRESENT (Deadline 12 February 2021)

I am interested in setting up a panel on the topic of Eastern European and non-western media portraits of racism, xenophobia, Anti-Semitism, and Islamophobia, past and present,. I myself am interested in presenting on Mandatory-era Palestinian nationalist views of Anti-Semitism in interwar Germany.  If any one studies non-western discourses on Nazism, the Holocaust, neo-Nazism, the new far-right, or migrants and refugees or related topics and would like to present at the GSA in 2021, please let me know by 12 Feburary 2021.
