Latinos and the far Right
The emergence of Latinxs in far-right organizing has been discussed by journalists but not yet received scholarly attention. However, as the fringe becomes the mainstream in right-wing politics, it is more urgent than ever to study the contemporary growing cohort of Latinxs in far-right organizing and their historical precedents. This historical project looks at the long history of Latinxs in far-right politics. It begins with Latinx involvement in white supremacist organizing in the Jim Crow era, turns to their role in the 1980s culture wars, and concludes with Latinxs in the alt-right. This multi-method project weaves together archival sources with the cutting-edge possibilities of digital humanities research and oral history to tell the history of Latinxs and the far-right.
