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, etc.
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)
