Description
In the aftermath of the First World War, a new kind of politics emerged in Europe. Fascists advocated unity, discipline, and violence against both internal and external enemies as antidotes to national weakness and decay. In power, they unleashed wars of conquest and unprecedented violence against civilians. What motivated the fascists? How did they take and hold power? How should we understand the continued importance of fascist-inspired movements? In this seminar course, we will investigate major events, figures, concepts, and debates about the history of fascism and neo-fascism. Readings include a core textbook, scholarly articles, and primary documents. Students will produce a substantial original research paper on a subject related to the themes of the course, as well as brief weekly responses to assigned readings. GE History and Global
