The past decade has witnessed a surge of nationalist, far-right politics across Europe and beyond it, as well as increasing scholarly interest in the study of such phenomena, especially from researchers who have brought urgently-needed and previously scarce ethnographic perspectives to bear on them. In this talk, anthropology professor Nitzan Shoshan will discuss his prize-winning book The Management of Hate: Nation, Affect, and the Governance of Right-Wing Extremism in Germany, the result of extended ethnographic fieldwork with groups of young right-wing extremists in East Berlin. An early contribution to the growing ethnography of the far right, Professor Shoshan’s study analyzes how the German state orchestrates political affects at the social
margins, arguing that right-wing extremists perform important political work within a broader contemporary project of German nationhood. In his talk, Professor Shoshan will focus on the politics of the distinction that separates extremes from mainstream. How is the relationship between right-wing extremism and a resumed mainstream constituted and imagined? And what can political anthropology contribute to our understanding of that relationship?
