Around the world, far-right nationalism is on the rise and is deeply intertwined with categories of gender, sexuality, and reproduction. To add original historical perspective, this special issue investigates how far-right nationalists have employed gender as a metalanguage for xenophobia, racism, and anti-Semitism from the 19th century to the present day. Seven case studies investigate discursive and political strategies, national and transnational networks, as well as shape-shifting ideologies of exclusion and difference. Topics range from cultural and virtual aspects of female extremists in the United States to family motifs in the Alternative for Germany, and from the salience of “Mother India” in Hindu Nationalism to the anti-Semitic subtext of the discourse vilifying ‘gender ideology’ that is disseminated throughout Europe and is particularly fulminant in Poland. While interdisciplinary in nature, all contributions apply a distinctly historical perspective and identify several overlapping themes relevant to the historical study of far-right nationalism and gender and its contemporary transformations: 1) biological and religious essentialism, 2) racism and xenophobia, and 3) and memes and discourses, as expressed most notably online.
