Talk: The Global Rise of Neo-Fascism and Recent Elections in Germany and Austria

As part of the Lessons from the Past, Looking Towards the Future lecture series in collaboration with UTEP, Dr. Marion Christina Rohrleitner, a native of Austria and an Associate Professor of English at UTEP, will offer an overview of the origins and rise of neo-fascist parties in Austria and Germany in the post-war period. Paying particular attention to the 2016 and 2017 election campaigns by right-wing parties and the outcome of recent federal and presidential elections in Austria and Germany. Dr. Rohrleitner will place these shifts in a larger global context, cross-referencing the rise of neo-fascism in Western and Central Europe with political shifts in the United States.
