HIST 587 Proto-Fascism in Europe and the Ottoman Empire Select Term:
Situated at the junction of nationalism studies with the history of Fascism and Nazism, this course proposes to explore the formation of proto-fascism (including its various dimensions of racism, anti-semitism, Social Darwinism, radical modernism, authoritarian state-fetishism, nihilism, mysticism, the death urge and the Führer principle) in the late 19th and early 20th century -- first in its original European and then its Late Ottoman context, where it acquired its Turkist and Unionist extensions. Course materials will comprise not only the usual secondary literature but also a number of primary sources (such as the key periodicals of the Second Constitutional period).
