Radical History Review seeks proposals for contributions to a forthcoming issue that will bring together historically oriented scholarship on fascisms and antifascisms since the end of the Second World War. Though scholars have widely understood interwar fascism as a complex web of nationalism, heteropatriarchy, and race and class-based ideology, since 1945 many far-right movements have emerged that draw upon elements of this political tendency without necessarily identifying as fascist, thus destabilizing the term fascism itself. What, for example, is the difference between uses of “fascism,” “populism,” and “authoritarianism” in political discourse and movements? How has the rise of antifascist groups affected movements on the far right? This issue of the Radical History Review will work to historicize fascist movements and movements against fascism since the end of the Second World War in order to question the continuities of fascism that have exploded into public view in the twenty-first century, including the widespread “misuse” of the term.
