|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject is a comparative study of European fascisms from the end of World War I through 1945. The primary focus will be on the fascist movements and regimes in Italy, Spain and Germany, but attention will also be given to the fascist movements in Romania, Hungary, France and Britain. Students will deal with issues such as the preconditions and precursors of fascism, the nature of fascist ideology, and the character of fascist regimes. The subject will also explore some of the basic interpretive problems concerning the definition and theory of fascism: whether there is such a thing as 'generic fascism', how useful the term is for historical analysis, and whether the interwar period can correctly be labelled as the 'era of fascism'.
|Assessment:||A seminar presentation 10% (during the semester), a book review of 1500 words 25% (due in mid semester), and a research essay of 3500 words 65% (due at the end of semester).|
