This essay attempts to chart the ways that the current political, cultural, linguistic and environmental climate appears to be characterised by what one might call a complex and open set of viral transcultural subparticles, always on the verge of recurrent outbreak. While these may seem novel to us, others among us may swear that they have seen some of them somewhere before. In this context, what does it mean to once again begin defining, if not overtly translating and interpreting, the signs and symbols of what can only be defined as a form of resurgent or incipient fascism? Where have these signs been sighted or reported before, and how might each of us arrive at a workable meaning and concrete academic response to them?
