Fascism and Theory: Latin American & European Approaches to Totalitarianism and Populism

Term: Fall 2008

Subject Code: GHIS

Course Number: 6847

This graduate seminar examines theories of fascism, totalitarianism and populism from a historical perspective. The approach is topical and transnational rather than national; however, it emphasizes specific European and Latin American cases (Argentina, Germany, France, Spain, Italy) as well as sources and theoretical readings that include Hannah Arendt, Georges Sorel, Gino Germani, Antonio Gramsci, Jorge Luis Borges, and Georges Bataille. In addition, the seminar addresses the most recent analytical studies on these questions.
