“Nazi Fans” but not Neo-Nazis: The Cultural Community of “WWII Fanatics”

Abstract [en]

This essay is based on a reception study I have made of four Swedish men who all but one have World War II/Nazi Germany as their greatest interest. Using Fiske's concept of "shadow cultural economy" I examine what turned out to be a form of fan community around WWII. Two of these men are into WWII role-play and strategy games, meeting with other "Nazi-fans" sharing the same interests and hobbies. This means that they have been forced to consider the ethical aspects of their hobby for being able to legitimate it both to others but perhaps even more to themselves.
