Anthony Marasco is an IUC Faculty Member and faculty of the University of Venice, Ca' Foscari, Italy.
Anthony Marasco received his B.A. in Foreign Literatures and Languages from the University of Venice, Ca' Foscari and his Ph.D. in Intellectual American History from the University of California, Berkeley. He is currently teaching American Language and Literatures at the University of Venice "Ca' Foscar". In his recent book Neo-conservatives: The Illusion of a Future in the Past, Marasco considers two of the most important anachronisms that result from the War against Terror, showing that the war is being waged not only to defeat a terrorist organization, but also, and above all, to pursue an "architectural project": the promotion of a regression to a "new world order" as it might have been if September 11 had never happened. The analysis of this regressive project leads him to make a critical review of the reasons why the War against Terror approach appears incapable of controlling the phenomena it produces on the ground.
