      Conference: Fascist Ideologues Past and Present, Teesside Univ. 4.-5.7.13
      http://www.tees.ac.uk/sections/research/events_details.cfm?event_id=5400

      The Institute of Design, Culture and the Arts, at Teesside University is hosting a conference, "Fascist Ideologues Past and Present," on 4-5th July 2013 and we'd like to take this opportunity to give you advance notice of what is sure to be a fascinating and stimulating event.

      This ground-breaking conference will present a variety of perspectives on leading fascist and far-right ideologues. Focusing upon the historical impact and contemporary influence of key radical right figures and 'intellectual' trends, such as transnationalism, meta-politics and White Power music, this event promises to bring together cutting-edge themes and speakers over two days of academic discussion.

      With contributions ranging from internationally-renowned researchers to British postgraduates, this event is intended to serve several purposes: to examine the continuities and changes to (neo-)fascist ideology over the last century; to present reports and interviews on key aspects of the contemporary far-right, especially regarding the turn toward anti-Muslim prejudice and responses to Britain's PREVENT strategy; and to formally launch the UK's first research centre dedicated to these issues: the Centre for Fascist, Anti-fascist and Post-fascist studies (CFAPS) at Teesside University. CFAPS will be led by Prof. Nigel Copsey and Dr Matthew Feldman.
