Far Right Intellectuals in Post-War Europe
Although some far right movements and political parties have had an outstandingly anti-intellectual streak, intellectuals have played an important role for the far right political current in many cases
I am seeking panelists for a session on „Far Right Intellectuals in Post-War Europe”, that I am organizing for the XVIIII ISA World Congress of Sociology which will be held on July 13-19 in Yokohama, Japan.
This panel will consider the following: Although some far right movements and political parties have had an outstandingly anti-intellectual streak, intellectuals have played an important role for the far right political current in many cases. Focusing on the post-war period in Europe, this panel seeks to understand the role far right intellectuals have played as part of the far right political spectrum, e.g. through political analysis and writing; through political intervention via organizations and parties, etcetera
Papers to this panel might address issues like
• The place of intellectuals and their activities in far right world view
• The worldview and political concepts/programs articulated by a particular far right intellectual
• The relationship of a particular far right intellectual towards a party or social movement
• The perception of the political concepts and analysis of far right intellectuals by far right political protagonists
• The perception of the ideas of a particular far right intellectual by mainstream academia and scholarship
• How did far right intellectuals influence political and/or societal discourse?
• Networks and associations of far right intellectuals (national; transnational)
Abstracts need to be sent directly to the ISA website by September 30, 2013. Please feel free to contact me directly, or visit the ISA website for more information.
