Theorising the nation
in The clamour of nationalism

Log-in for full text

This chapter engages with the question of nation through a range of openings: an examination of its history, a reckoning with its conceptual specificity, but most importantly, a reading of race's wider place in governing European nation-state politics. Having proposed a particular attunement to the question of the nation, it also engages further some of the more specific historical detail relevant to the nation's emergence and popularisation. The exclusionary chauvinism of nationalism was rendered manifestly immanent, insofar as those who resist their marginalisation were obliged ultimately to commit themselves to their own chain of nation-making essentialisms and exclusions. Taxonomies of race on the one hand and ethnic conceptions of the nation on the other emerged concomitantly, each generating complementary logics, vocabularies, symbols and affects as relevant to engendering structures of thick belonging and exclusion.
