Primary Instructor:

Neofascism, Islamofascism, Ecofascism - the word emerges recurrently, but what exactly is fascism? Interwar fascism preyed upon economic, social, and political frustrations, offering as salve a caustic mix of ultra-nationalism, racial scapegoating, and world domination. The cult-like figures of Mussolini and Hitler mesmerized entire populations into fanatical devotion, seducing them to forfeit democracy and freedom for an eternal state of war and genocide. This course examines the historical rise, reign, and fall of fascist ideology and rule through memoirs, documents, films, and other media, investigating not only the nature of fascism in the past but also its bearings in the present.
