Professor Matthew Feldman is an expert on fascist ideology and the contemporary far-right in Europe and the USA.  He has written widely on these subjects, as well as on the interaction between politics and faith in the modern world.  He has also taught these subjects for more than a decade for sixth-form, undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Matthew is a Professor in Contemporary History at Teesside University, a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Bergen, Norway, and he has held previous fellowships with the Universities of Oxford and Birmingham, as well as HEFCE and the University of Northampton, where he previously directed the School of Social Sciences’ Radicalism and New Media Research Group (http://www.radicalism-new-media.org/). He is also an editor of Wiley-Blackwell’s online journal, Compass: Political Religions, Continuum’s monograph series, Historicizing Modernism, and has published widely in the areas of cultural and political history since WWI.

Matthew worked with the police and Crown Prosecution on far-right terrorism and incitement, where he acted as the prosecution’s expert witness in several high-profile cases. Since 2009. This has led to additional consultation with police, probation, CPS and third sector organisations across the UK, the intelligence services, as well as for the All-Parliamentary Committee on Anti-Semitism.

He has also appeared on various radio and television programmes to discuss the rise of the far-right in the 21st century, including interviews on PM with Eddy Mair, World Tonight with Robin Lustig, as well as on Sky News, ITV News, Channel 4 News and others.  Extended media work includes presentations on Radio 4’s File on Four programme [22/09/09], filmed conferences on the far-right in Germany and the UK, and a range of interviews in print and online (many of which are available at http://www.radicalism-new-media.org/?page_id=437).

Research interests

Published texts extend to journal articles, book chapters and reviews, as well as the edited books Clerical Fascism in Interwar Europe (with Marius Turda and Tudor Georgescu: Routledge 2008), A Fascist Century (Palgrave: 2008), and with Roger Griffin, the five-volume collection Fascism: Critical Concepts (Routledge 2004).

Matthew is currently preparing both a book and television documentary on extremist propaganda, co-editing (with Paul Jackson) a volume entitled Doublespeak: The Rhetoric of the Far-Right since 1945, and is co-organising several forthcoming events related to this research.
