Cultures & Economies:

This seminar focuses on the relationship between 'the economy' and 'culture' in the contemporary United States. The specific focus on this course changes by semester; here is the current focus: Far-right movements are on the rise in the US and around the globe. This course explores the contemporary resurgence of far-right movements through a broad historical framework, including histories of colonialism and racial capitalism, transformations in the global economy, and the proliferation of paramilitary infrastructures worldwide. Readings will focus on historical case studies from different parts of the world that illustrate the distinctive histories and ideological features of far-right groups, including the Patriot movement in the United States, anti-communist mercenary soldiers in Nicaragua and the former apartheid state of Rhodesia, and the ascendence of Hindu nationalism in India.
