Modernity and Fascist temporalities is a talk by Professor Roger Griffin based on his article ‘Fixing Solutions: Fascist temporalities as Remedies for Liquid Modernity’ published this month in Journal of Modern European History. It was delivered in an early form at a conference on Fascist time held in 2013 in Italy, and draws on his sustained interest in the relationship between various historical phenomena which represent the attempt to transcend anomic time through the power of palingenetic myth.

Roger D. Griffin is a professor of modern history and political theorist at Oxford Brookes University. His principal interest is the socio-historical and ideological dynamics of fascism, as well as various forms of political or religious fanaticism.
