The Catechism Debate

In the interest of keeping our recently-curated “Catechism Debate” essays available to the general public, as well as to encourage educators to integrate them into their assigned readings and in-class discussions, the Editorial Board for the New Fascism Syllabus has put together a collection of typeset versions for each of the articles in question. The links provided in the first section will lead you to the HTML and PDF versions of all of the Catechism Debate essays as a collection, while the links provided in the second second provide you with access to the individual articles in HTML and PDF format. A note: the PDFs do not include the hyperlinks to in-text references. For those links, please consult the HTML version.

German-language articles generated in the wake of the NFS discussion are archived on Serdar Günes’s blog. This list is continually being updated.

We hope that these articles and the critical discussions that they have sparked during the previous months will continue to circulate widely over the coming years.
