“Interrogating the Past” offers a historical overview of fascist, populist, and right-authoritarian movements around the globe. Because of the wide availability of crowd-sourced syllabi on US American history, we have not replicated their work but rather focused on other regions. Trump Syllabus, Trump Syllabus 2.0 and Trump Syllabus 3.0 are good places to get started for readings on US American history.
“Interrogating the Present” collects commentary by experts in fascism, authoritarianism, and populism regarding the present historical moment. In this section, we have included writings on the United States as well as intimations of right-wing authoritarianism elsewhere.
We aim to include writings that represent the range of scholarly debate on issues relevant to this syllabus. Inclusion of an item does not necessarily indicate editorial agreement with the author’s analysis.
