Fascism Foreshadowed: Europe 1967-2017

A lecture by: 

Dr. Douglas Holmes
Distinguished Professor of Anthropology
Binghamton University

Dr. Douglas Holmes is an anthropologist whose work has focused on the global monetary regime and the role of central bankers. His research interests include: the anthropology of finance; the interplay among data, information, and intelligence in the formulation of communication of monetary policy; the political anthropology of extreme-right wing political movements in Europe; and communication in central banks.  His recent research has examined the ways in which central bankers use words and language to influence expectations and shape economic behavior prospectively. Dr. Holmes received his B.A. from Bennington College and his Ph.D. in anthropological sciences from the State University of New York, Stony Brook.

This is the fifth lecture in the BMW Center's 2016-2017 special events series "(N)ever Closer Union? Taking Stock of the European Project," and is supported by the Michael C. Olshausen Lecture Fund.
