The Czech Republic, the American Far-Right, and the Politics of Ethno-nationalism

GENINT 741.367

Osher (50+). This course focuses on the rise of far-right populism in the Czech Republic and the USA.


About this course:

Since its independence in 1992, the Czech Republic has established itself as a thriving and politically stable central European nation with substantial party competition. It has also experienced a more visible rise in Euroscepticism, anti-immigrant, and anti-minority rhetoric since the 2015 refugee crisis. Similarly, in the United States, American ethno-nationalist sentiment has risen in recent years with anti-corporate press platforms and political extremism. In this course, we introduce the context of Euroscepticism, ethno-nationalist strategies in Czech and American politics, and the implications of an institutional far-right in political discourse.
