A native of eastern Kansas, Eliah Bures studied history and German as an undergraduate at KU before receiving a PhD in modern European history from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2014. From 2014 to 2017, Bures was a postdoctoral teaching fellow in Spain. He is currently a senior fellow at UC Berkeley’s Center for Right-Wing Studies, where he cofounded and manages the Journal of Right-Wing Studies. Bures has published scholarly articles in Modern Intellectual History, the Journal for the Study of Radicalism, and Fascism: Journal of Comparative Fascist Studies (forthcoming), as well as chapters in edited collections. He has also published journalism in popular venues such as Foreign Policy and the Los Angeles Review of Books. Bures is a regular presenter at international conferences and was recently invited to give the keynote address at the Global Cultures conference at the University of Bologna on the theme of “crisis” in the modern world. His research focuses on modern German history, interwar fascism and its historical afterlives, and far-right politics generally.
