Students are expected to participate on the day and time scheduled.

Fascism and populism are historical terms that have suddenly returned to the center of political discourse. They are applied to a wide variety of regimes and movements located across the ideological spectrum from left to right. Some scholars have even begun to question whether the terms retain their meaning and usefulness. This course will seek to locate these political phenomena in history: When and where did they emerge? How have they changed over time and in different contexts? We will be particularly interested in exploring the transnational evolution of fascism and populism and in exploring how Latin American histories can illuminate European ones. Among the cases we will consider are: Italy, Spain, Argentina, Mexico and Brazil.

HIST 535 DL3 is a distance education section.
