The world behind a word. An anthropological exploration of fascist practices and meanings among European youth.

Project description

The F-word in contemporary Europe

How does it continue to constitute a compelling and urgent issue in Europe today? To answer this question, the EU-funded F-WORD project will carry out comparative ethnographic research among martial arts and combat sports sites. It will use these sites as contexts for exploring how fascist practices and meanings are diffused and appropriated by youth. Overall, the project will develop a new paradigm in the anthropological exploration of contemporary fascism, framed by the methodology of feminist ethnography. The project will also explore the issue diachronically by exploring how European history and memory politics are practiced in the daily lives of young people and how these are signified and experienced.
