Algeria, antifascism, and Third Worldism: An anticolonial genealogy of the Western European New Left (Algeria, France, Italy, 1957-1975)

Project description

Third Worldism and Europe’s left

The Algerian War of Independence (1954–1962), and Third Worldism in general, considerably affected the emerging new political cultures in the ‘long 1960s’ and linked a renewed anti-fascism with anti-colonialism. The EU-funded The Damned project will study the genealogy of the New Left in Western Europe from the mid-1950s to the mid-1970s. The project will focus on Algeria, France and Italy to reframe the European political geography to include the (post)colonial space and reassess the historical influence of the Algerian War of Independence on the new political cultures of the 1960s. The Damned will produce a case study to understand the emergence of the New Left as a complex local, national and transnational process.
