Episode 5: Fascism in the 21st Century, Part 2
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:
Walled States, Waning Sovereignty by Wendy Brown
"Ur-Fascism" by Umberto Eco
"The Ghosts of 1920s Italy Are Here to Haunt Us" by Diego Maiorano
