Workshop Capitalism, Fascism, and the Environment

Organized by GSSC affiliate Ognien Kojanic, this workshop of the Network Anthropology of Fascisms (ANTHROFA) within the EASA Anthropology of Economy Network (AoE) turned Cologne’s Alte Feuerwache, a popular activist-cultural center, into a 2-day laboratory for dissecting the complex relationship between capitalism, fascism and the environment. The contributions ranged from wolf politics in Germany, to ecologism in far-right transnational groups and French far-right localism, to more general considerations about the global context conducive for fascism. Alexandra Coţofană’s (Zayed University, UAE) Keynote, Xenophobic Sentient Landscapes – Fascist Responses to Economic Colonialisms (https://gssc.uni-koeln.de/veranstaltungen/public-lecture/pl-23-07-03-cotofana) threw a spotlight on how the Carpathian Mountains in Romania are conceived of as landscapes that intendedly act in defense of the nation – an intriguing twist on the “ontological turn” that invited spirited debate.
