The international conference The Right-Wing Parties and Intellectuals in Interwar South Eastern Europe: Between Conservatism and Fascism held on 7-8 April 2022

An international conference entitled The Right-Wing Parties and Intellectuals in Interwar South Eastern Europe: Between Conservatism and Fascism was held in the Great Conference Hall of the Hotel Majestic in Belgrade on 7-8 April 2022.

The conference was part of the ongoing project The Serbian Right-Wing Parties and Intellectuals in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, 1934-1941 supported by the Science Fund of the Republic of Serbia, PROMIS, Grant No. 6062708, SerbRightWing.

Over the two days 24 papers were presented both on-site and online via Zoom (three presenters were, unfortunately, unable to join us) divided into seven thematic panels. There was a nice mixture of both established and emerging scholars from the field coming from a number of countries. Professor António Costa Pinto from the Institute of Social Sciences, University of Lisbon, delivered a keynote lecture “Building Dictatorships in the Era of Fascism. A Global View” on the second day of the conference.

The organizers, Dragan Bakić, Dušan Fundić and Rastko Lompar from the Institute for Balkan Studies SASA, would like to extend their thanks to all the participants. It is their intention to publish an edited volume consisting of the conference proceedings which will, hopefully, be out in print next year.
