Past and present, colony and metropole: The legacy of French Algeria for the far right in contemporary France
Jack Veugelers received his B.A. (in Sociology and Anthropology) from the University of Toronto and his M.A. and Ph.D. (in Sociology) from Princeton University. He joined the Department of Sociology at the University of Toronto in 1996 and in 2001 received the Outstanding Teaching Award from the Faculty of Arts and Science. His research has focused primarily on right-wing extremism and the politics of immigration in Canada and Europe (especially France and Italy). His current project, a study of the politics of European ex-colonials from Algeria, traces the connections between colonialism, voluntary association, and right-wing extremism in France today.
