Join Eszter Szenes for a talk on the power of language in the construction of a transnational
eco-fascist environmentalist movement. Drawing on quantitative and qualitative methods from
linguistics and sociology, Szenes shows how extreme right groups link ‘old’ grievances such
as ‘global Zionism’, ‘foreign invasion’ and ‘migrant/refugee/gypsy crime’ to the climate crisis.
How does the extreme right exploit the climate crisis by promoting eco-fascist ‘solutions’ such
as ‘saving’ the ‘global North’ from climate-fueled migration from the ‘global South’? The talk
concludes by discussing the implications of eco-fascism for (trans)national security.
