Considering the rise in the past years of Nationalistic, Ethnocentric, and ‘Strongmen’ state leaders, there are a number of questions and dialogues about this political phenomena. Both domestic and international politics have been caught in the middle of the debate around authoritarian type leaders and their place in the world. As well, the public sphere has been shaken by political divisions. At this point, it seems necessary to understand how authoritarian, nationalistic, and ethnocentric leaders relate to each other, their opponents, and the public at large. To do this we are looking for an assortment of papers from a wide range of thinkers to contribute to this matter. 

Topics and Questions for “Fascism and Power” can pertain to the following issues:

  • History of Fascism

  • Does Fascism Exist Today?

  • Media and the Label of Fascist

  • Problems in Defining Fascism

  • The Psychology of Fascist and Authoritarian Leaders

  • Public Support of Fascism

  • Authoritarianism and Fascism: Is there a difference?

  • Class and Fascism

  • Race and Fascism

  • Political Ideologies and Fascist Tendencies

  • Language and Fascism

  • Religion and Fascism

If you have an additional issue that doesn't fit this framework, let us know and we will be happy to consider it. 

This will be the first issue of the peer-reviewed academic journal of The GCAS Review. We are currently applying for an ISSN number and are not an accredited university, yet. Both these matters are of the utmost importance to our institution and publication.
