Forum: What is Fascism? What is Authoritarianism?

The UNCG History Department invites the community to a roundtable discussion about authoritarianism throughout history.

The forum will be Thursday, March 23, 6:30 p.m., in the UNCG 
Faculty Center. Admission is free.

In 1944, George Orwell famously posed the question: “What is fascism?,” suggesting that the widespread use of the term—in both print and conversation—had deemed it nearly “meaningless.” Now, almost 75 years later, the word continues to be applied broadly, leading us back to Orwell’s original question.

Join the UNCG History Department as they reflect on historical examples of fascism and other forms of authoritarianism, from Europe to the Americas.
