‘Cerdos fascistas: los organismos tecnocientíficos y la historia del fascismo’ (Fascist pigs: the techno-scientific bodies and the history of fascism) is the title of the conference that Tiago Saraiva, professor of the Drexel University (USA), will give this Wednesday 26 April at 16:00 at the Palau de Cerveró of the UV. Tiago Saravia will present his book ‘Fascist pigs’ (Boston, MIT, 2017) in which the author studies the fascism as biopolitics. It is based on the conviction that fascism is a political phenomenon in which the management and the control of the life played a central role.
Saraiva investigates the creation and farming of animals and plants which represent the fascism. He tells in detail how the techno-scientific bodies, such as the pigs, which were used to feed the national community imagined by fascists, became important elements in the institutionalisation and the spread of the regimes of Mussolini in Italy, Salazar in Portugal and Hitler in Germany.
