"Researchers of Historical and Neo-Fascism"
A network of students and scholars interested in the cross-cultural study of the history, theory and permutations of international inter- and post-war fascism.
The idea for this network is inspired by the English- and German-language discussion by 40 prominent scholars of Wolfgang Wippermann's and Roger Griffin's conceptualizations and interpretations of generic fascism in the collected volumes
