Join us for a free public lecture at 7-9pm on March 28th, 2013 in Room 144 (east end of the building on the ground floor) at University College, 15 King’s College Circle, Toronto, ON by:

Jack Veugelers, Professor of Sociology, U. of Toronto


The Far Right in France


Jack Veugelers received his B.A. (in Sociology and Anthropology) from the University of Toronto and his M.A. and Ph.D. (in Sociology) from Princeton University. He joined the Department of Sociology at the University of Toronto in 1996, and in 2001 he received the Outstanding Teaching Award from the Faculty of Arts and Science. His research has focussed primarily on right-wing extremism and the politics of immigration in Canada and Europe (especially France and Italy).

Research Interests:
Currently I am engaged in three research projects: (1) Alexis de Tocqueville on imperialism – a project in classical theory; (2) Under what conditions does participation in voluntary associations enhance or undermine democratic politics? A study of the politics of European ex-colonials from Algeria who now reside in France that traces the connections between colonialism, voluntary association, and right-wing extremism in France today; (3) Abeyance structures and social movements – a study of the historical transmission of neo-fascist activism in post-war Italy.
