Radical Right Reading Group session | Friday 8 October 15:00-17:00 in BG1 0.12 | For the first session of the 21/22 season, we want to continue our discussion on the idea of “microfascism” as developed by Deleuze and Guattari.
|Date||8 October 2021|
Having gone back to the primary texts, in this session we will venture into some of the secondary and more contemporary literature.The key question that we would like to explore this time around can be summarized as follows: (To what extent) does microfascism provide a helpful conceptual frame for thinking about extreme-right/reactionary subcultures and subjectivities online? And how does it “synergize” with recent (new) materialist media theories?The session will take place in BG1 0.12, Friday 8 October 15:00-17:00.
If you would like to join through Zoom, and/or require access to the texts, please send us a message (firstname.lastname@example.org).
