F16A4 Fascism in Europe

This course offers a comparative understanding of fascism in Europe with a focus on Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Francoist Spain. It will uncover the origins of fascism and the rise of the fascist party. We will explore the hyper-nationalist aims of the movements, as well as their women's branches. The course will also examine the xenophobic platforms and programs of the groups as well as the problems they encountered in their quest for homogeneity.

Instructor: Jessica Davidson is Associate Professor of History at JMU. She received her PhD at Brandeis University and wrote her dissertation on women and fascism in Franco's Spain.

Suggested Reading: Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany: The "Fascist" Style of Rule, Alexander De Grand (Routledge, 1995). Amazon has inexpensive copies of this short book.
