CFP: Fascism: Journal of Comparative Fascist Studies (Journal special edition on Eastern Europe)

For the October 2012 issue, Fascism: Journal of Comparative Fascist Studies seeks articles about and from Eastern Europe. Since the fall of communism a new and rich literature on present and past fascism in Eastern Europe has emerged. Fascism feels that these studies deserve a more prominent place in the community studying generic fascism. We’re looking for contributions on inter-war and war-time fascism and post-war neo-fascism. Possible topics: – the relation between fascist movements and the national political establishment – modernist utopianism in fascist thinking – social and regional composition of fascist constituencies – patterns in the causal aspects/genesis of various fascisms in political, economic, social, historical, and psychological factors – their expression in art, culture, ritual and propaganda – elements of continuity between interwar and postwar fascisms – fascisms in relation to national and cultural crisis, revolution, modernity/modernism, political religion, totalitarianism, capitalism, communism, extremism, charismatic dictatorship, patriarchy, terrorism, fundamentalism – other phenomena related to the rise of political and social extremism
