Graham Macklin

Assistant Professor/Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Research on Extremism (C-Rex), University of Oslo

Graham Macklin is an Assistant Professor/Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Research on Extremism (C-Rex), University of Oslo, Norway. He has long standing research interests in fascist and extreme right-wing politics in Britain, North America and Europe and is interested more broadly in the study of political violence and terrorism.

He completed his PhD at Sheffield University (2002) on the resurrection of British fascism after 1945, which formed the basis for his subsequent monograph “Very Deeply Dyed in Black”: Oswald Mosley and the resurrection of British fascism (2007).

He has published widely on the field of fascist, extreme right-wing, and anti-Muslim politics including British National Party: Contemporary Perspectives (2011), co-edited with with Professor Nigel Copsey. His most recent research has focused upon the interactive dynamics of extremist violence.

Macklin is currently completing a history of the White Racial Nationalism in Britain together with another project entitled Transnational Extreme Right Networks, co-edited with Professor Fabian Virchow (Dusseldorf). Both will be published by Routledge in 2018.

Macklin is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society (RHS) and a member of the editorial board for Patterns of Prejudice. He also co-edits the ‘Fascism and the Far Right’ book series for Routledge.
