Episode 4: Fascism in the 21st Century, Part 1
In this episode, we consider Donald Trump in USA, and Narendra Modi in India through theories of Fascism. We ask to what extent these politicians and the movements they lead can be described as 21st Century forms of Fascism.
The theoretical texts we refer to are:
The Origins of Totalitarianism by Hannah Arendt
"Ur-Fascism" by Umberto Eco
Selections from the Prison Notebooks by Antonio Gramsci
