Description of research topic:
My primary research question seeks to analyse the interaction between the anti-Semitism professed by the legionary movement - the most popular extreme right formation in inter-war Romania - and its fascist character. The hypothesis to be tested is that the legionary social project was defined by their representation of the 'Jew', a locus of displacement of the real problems facing Romanian society, and at the same time a rationalisation of its desired state. This research is backed up by the use of a methodology indebted mostly to psychoanalytic theory and its adaptations to the understanding of social phenomena by discourse theory.
