Anchoring the Fascist Revolution is an international research project based at the University of Groningen (the Netherlands) and the University of Oslo (Norway). We study the use of the Classical languages under fascism, focussing especially on the Latin literature produced in Italy under Mussolini (1922–1943). Anchoring the Fascist Revolution is part of the Anchoring Innovation research agenda of OIKOS (the Netherlands’ National Research School in Classical Studies).
As part of this research initiative, we are also currently creating an online edition aimed at making available Fascist Latin texts both in the original and in English translation. The first phase of this online edition has been made possible by a grant of the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Oslo.
New Signs of Antiquity is a related research project funded by the Norwegian Research Council and based at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, and the History of Art and Ideas of the University of Oslo.
