About us

The aim of the Reactionary Politics Research Group (RPRG) is to bring together researchers into all forms of reactionary movements, politics and resistance to them. This includes sexism, homophobia and transphobia, classism, ableism, racism and ecofascism. The RPRG is interdisciplinary and open to all methods but requires a critical approach to researching reactionary politics. Particular care is taken towards ethical engagement with such research. Postgraduate research candidates are welcome.
