Hannah Arendt’s “Origins of Totalitarianism” lecture at Texas Woman’s University

On 21 November 2017, I gave an overview lecture of Hannah Arendt’s “The Origins of Totalitarianism” at Texas Woman’s University Department of History and Government. See how Arendt anticipated “fake news,” social media, and the rise of modern loneliness.

One thought

  1. Thank you, an excellent lecture. I am in the process of reading “Origins of Totalitarianism” at the moment. I liked that you talked about Leni Refensthal and Ava Peron, and you made the distinction between popularism and fascism.
