The impact of extreme right politics has changed in recent times, creating new challenges for those who teach on this topic. This one-day conference will bring together academics and practitioners to discuss fresh approaches to teaching about the extreme right, as well as reflecting on established approaches.

We are inviting submissions for papers or presentations in other formats for the day. Suggested topics include:
- How to engage audiences, and promote understanding of the extreme right
- Material culture, archival material and teaching about the extreme right
- Examining online material produced by the extreme right in the classroom
- Reflections on quantitative and qualitative approaches to teaching about the extreme right
- Teaching about the history of the extreme right and/or anti-fascism
- Creating inclusive spaces when teaching about the extreme right
- Objectivity, subjectivity and the teaching of the extreme right
- Holocaust memorialisation as an educational opportunity
- Ethics and teaching on the extreme right

The keynote paper for the conference will be given by:

Dr Aaron Winter, Senior Lecturer in Criminology (University of East London)
