America and World Fascism

Emerging America
Event Start Date: 
Jan 22 2021 - 9:00am
From the Spanish Civil War to Nuremberg and Beyond
For a century the world has experienced ideological–and actual–war between fascism and democratic-republicanism, anarchism, communism, and socialism. Examine the history of world fascism from its peak in the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) and WWII in Europe (1939-1945) through the Nuremberg Trials (1945-1946) to today. Study and discuss the impact of fascist thought and action on human rights through that decade of war, to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the post-WWII era, with effects that reach into neo-Nazi, White Supremacist, and other present-day far-right movements in Europe, America, and around the globe.

The Right to Privacy

Emerging America
Event Start Date: 
May 3 2021 - 9:00am
"The Most Valued and Comprehensive Right"
This course will explore how the constitutional right to privacy developed; how it is applied; and the threats it faces today—from sexual to virtual.
