The islamogauchisme discourse, or the power to create the inner enemy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article aims to examine the genealogy of the discourse of islamogauchisme (sometimes translated as ‘Islamo-leftism’), provide a socio-historical analysis of its political functions in the French
culture wars and highlight its relevance to an understanding of transnational, particularly transatlantic, opposition to antiracist and pro-Palestinian politics. The article will also place the islamogauchisme discourse within a deeper history of racialised conspiracy thinking.
