Call for papers: Radical Nationalism and Fascism in East Asia: New Approaches in Research
February 14, 2020
Aim of the conference:
Despite intense scholarly interest in the history of radical nationalism and fascism, the connections between fascist/radical nationalist ideas and particular East Asian nationalist thinkers is an important theme that appears to have been mostly ignored by ‘Western scholars’. The European study of fascism and the study of major strands of East Asian nationalisms and fascisms do not seem to be connected and two well-established academic disciplines – studies of nationalism and fascism studies in East Asia – often seem ignorant of each other. The electoral successes of radical nationalist and right-wing populist parties across Western democracies have increased the interest of scholars specialising in this area. The last decade has seen “fascism” come back into fashion. It is evident that there is an increasing importance of radical nationalist and (neo)fascist movements on the political spectrum, which is part and parcel of a resurgence in authoritarianism that is currently being experienced throughout the world, from Europe to China.
